Ito is the 'cord' that is being used to wrap around the handle of your katana
(tsuka) and is available in various materials and colors.
The most common wrapping method is called Hineri Maki where the ito is folded
over twice at a 90 degree angle at the crossing and results in a nice diamnd
shape. Tsumami-maki is another form of tsukamaki where the ito is pinched
at the crossing. Another very famous methode is the Katate maki or also know
over here as the Battle wrap.
My fascination for japanese swords was born around 2005 when i was running my first online martial arts equipment store and a customer asked me if i didn’t got any ‘real’ Japanese Swords...
