What is a Tsuba

Posted by

A tsuba (pronounced soo-ba) is basically the guard on a Japanese Samurai sword, or KATANA. They are usually round, but sometimes square and have a hole in the middle where the tang (handle part of the blade) goes through. Typically made of iron or copper, a tsuba is made to protect the hands of the user during combat.
