Tsuba is the hand guard mounted on a Japanese sword. It serves to keep the user’s hand from sliding up onto the blade of the sword, to counterbalance the weight of the blade, to communicate the social standing, beliefs and tastes of its owner, and, to some degree, to protect the hand from an opponent’s blade. There are no samurai now. Se it as a figurine, paper weight, or coaster. Please check the photos carefully and there may be scratches that do not appear in the photo. Thank you for your understanding in advance. Please feel free to contact me as we will take additional pictures if there is a part you want to see. International Buyers – Please Note.
