Tsuba

Tsuba

lexikon-tsubaThe tsuba is the hand guard of a samurai sword. It protects the hand from injuries and keeps the user's hand from sliding forward onto the blade. Swords and sabers have a similar guard. The tsuba is usually round or has an oval shape. It can be a simple iron or leather disc or an intricate design element with open-work decorations, gold plating and etched patterns.
