Hi Guys,

Got me a WWII Tsuba with all the trimmings. No habaki yet. I'm considering taking an alginate impression of the ricasso, making a stone-resin cat of the blade, and send same to have a habaki done.

Regarding the tsuba. Surprise!

It doesn't fit (but I won't yet quit).

Is there any manner in which I may open the tsuba, without destroying the wrappings, so I may adapt same to the tang?

Best

Manolo

BTW: Got me a couple more NCO swords, haven't had yet the time to clean them, so no pics just yet...
