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,
, 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).
