Katana handle: Fuchi, Menuki, Kashira, ray skin and wrapping, brown leather

This is a complete set of parts for a japanese sword handle | grip incl. Fuchi, Menuki, Kashira and winding. In principle, this handle is suitable for any John Lee sword, but the drilling for the Mekugi itself must be done by the buyer. The task of Mekugi is to ensure a strong connection between the grip and the blade. There are two holes (Mekugi Ana) in the handle and also in the blade tang. To do this, simply measure the blade's tang so that the alignment fits. More information...
