Yep again. Tsuka it its. I bow to your knowledge, O' Kisak-san!.



I believed the same was comprised of two wood halves held together by the combination of kabuto-gane, the ito, same, mekugi, and the fuchi..

So, how did they fit tsubas to the tang? Did they begin with the wood, and once finished , they did the sane-giso and the ito?

And what is more important. How can I adapt a tsuka to the daito's tang without damaging the latter?

Ooopsies! Sorry again, I meant nagako...

And to the best of my knowledge the grip isn't considered "disassemle-able". The only part of grips I've heard of getting re-used are the metal parts (fuchi, kashira, menuki).
