Anywhere I can buy spare katana parts?
« on: December 10, 2009, 03:32:17 PM »
He everyone.. I've had this one katana for a while, and the wooden tsuka (handle) is getting a little damaged. I wanted to know if there was any kind of specialty store online where I can buy a new one for real cheap. Doesn't have to be any kind of well made thing, the katana was cheap to begin with, but I'd rather just replace a tsuka than the whole sword.

Usually, a Tsuka has to be fit to the tang of the sword....I couldn't see that a ready made Tsuka would offer any guarantee of proper fit.
