Ryujin Swords

Tsuba

These are the best available reproduction tsuba made in steel. The majority are handmade by either casting or forging. The exceptions are the 1900 series, which are machine-made, and therefore are lower in price.

If you need an antique tsuba, either click here or contact me to discuss your requirements. We have the contacts to source what you need.

If you want an original handmade tsuba, contact me; we may be able to arrange for a commission.
