tsuba. By removing the mekugi (bamboo pins) you will be able to take your sword

The Japanese Tsuba - Paul Chen Tsuba Collection
A tsuba is the hand guard of a Japanese sword. It served several purposes.
The tsuba balanced the sword. And it protected the hand of the sword holder
from an attack by an enemy as well as from gliding into the sword blade.
The third purpose was a more refined one. The Japanese tsuba developed into
a kind of a status symbol for the sword owner. Thus the Japanese sword tsuba
became an elaborate piece of art - far beyond its practical use.
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...
