Just a couple of notes:

Many decent tsubas are beginning to appear along with furniture.


I suppose this is a good thing as one can upgrade more readily.

One nicely bladed Katana I have has, frankly, a waki sized tsuba.

So, eventually, I suppose I will have a waki sized tsuba around.

Hi:
Although I make no pretense to be a swordsman with the Katana, I doo have a few years experience with TC sword forms.

Quite different philosophies.

Here are some pics reflecting furniture available for the Katana:

Hopefuly the sources found will help uprgrading.

Mostly all furniture is nw available if one looks hard enough.
