The Tsuka and the Fittings
This Katana is wrapped with a black Tsuka Ito. It contributes to the swords beauty and artistic value. It also helps prevent a variety of issues from occurring when you practice Tameshigiri.
Underneath the Ito is the red Samegawa. The wrap keeps the Tsuka dry even if your hands sweat while practicing. This makes gripping the sword easier since it will stay dry. With that, the chances of your sword slipping from your hands will be reduced.
For the fittings, this Katana has a Tsuba, Kashira, and Menuki which are all made of HQ Copper. An exception is the Fuchi that is made of metal. The Tsuba keeps guards your hand from your opponents strikes. The Menuki is a decorative piece of metal that is placed under the Tsuka Ito.
The Kashira and Fuchi are mostly for ornamental purposes. The Fuchi covers the opening at the end of the Tsuka. The Kashira is a fitting near the Tsuba. It also prevents the sword from slipping while keeping its balance.
