New! Warranty info and ~47% and ~33% OFF Owner discount offer


Polycarbonate, the material of which our tsuba is made, is a very strong plastic, however it is not unbreakable.

Our aim at Kinsho Tsuba is to make you able to use your favorite personal tsuba comfortably, so we offer a warranty for accidental material-error, and an owner-discount offer.

We offer a 2-month-warranty for breakage due to accidental material error for our tsuba. (Less than 0,5 % were reported from our 1st and 2nd generation tsuba with probable material error so far and 0% from our CNC manufactured 3rd generation tsuba.)

It means that should your tsuba break during regular use, in 2 months after you had recieved it, we change it for free. Just send us the picture about your demaged tsuba within the warranty-period and you’ll get a new one.

Longer warranty period is not possible, as the life of a tsuba depends mostly on the technique of the kendoka who holds the shinai and his / her opponent, just like a shinai can be easily broken because of only one unfortunate strike as well.

However most of our tsuba are in use for years now.

This offer is valid from 01.01.2018. until cancellation.

Owner discount offer


Your tsuba may wear out with time because of the many trainigs you have attanded, or you may get bored of it and want another design. So we have a special offer for you as a Kinsho Tsuba owner.

Wherever you want to change your existing or demaged tsuba after the warranty period, just send us a picture about it in its actual form and you are eligible for a special ~47% discount for a new tsuba (after the 47 loyal Ronin:) with whether the same design or with any other new one. In addition this offer is valid for +1 tsuba with ~33% off for any design.


This offer is valid for all the Kinsho Tsuba owners, it does not matter whether you bought, got as a gift, or won your tsuba, also does not matter when.

If you want a new one, just send us an actual picture about it,

and you are eligible to order 1 tsuba for 8,00 EUR/pc, (exl. shipping)


you can also order +1 Tsuba for 33% OFF (9,90 EUR, exl. shipping.)

This offer is valid for one tsuba, and also valid for the new one.

For example, if you have 2 tsuba, you can get 2 new ones for 8,00 EUR, + 2 pieces for 9,90 EUR, and 2 months later you can validate this offer once for your new tsuba as well.

This offer is valid from 01.01.2018. until cancellation.

Good changes around Kinsho Tsuba!

We have some good news to share as slight changes have taken place in the making process of our custom tsuba. In short:

  • the material of the tsuba is changed from normal PC to premium PC
  • the tsuba bodies are now made by CNC milling machines, which has improved inner surface quality, dimensional accuracy and durability in general
  • the inner diameter got slightly bigger, actually 34 mm for 3.9 tsuba, and 32 mm for 3.8 tsuba
  • the outer diameter got slighlty smaller, it’s 84 mm at both sizes
  • thank to the changes in manufacturing process, we will be able to make the new tsuba in 1-2 weeks in the future 🙂
  • we offer tracking service to all of our shipments
  • prices of the tsuba have not changed 🙂
  • you can reach us at as well 😉

Tsuba Reservation for Hungary Cup 2016

The Annual Hungary Kendo Cup and Training Camp will take place in Budapest between 14.-17. July.

Kinsho Tsuba will also be there on 16. and 17. July during the Competition and we offer 20 % discount on all our  tsuba on the spot. Price for Hungary Cup: 11,90 € each.

To make it easier and sure that you can get yours you can now reserve one here. We plan to make 2-3 pieces from each pattern so reservation would be a really big help for us.

How to reserve a tsuba? Sorry, tsuba reservation time’s over.

Simply choose which one(s) you would like to buy and in which size. Reserved tsuba can only be received on 16.07, Saturday for the discounted price of 11,90 €. For 17.07, Sunday the reservations are cancelled.

Reservation does not mean that you must buy the  ones you picked, you just show your intention and thus help us.

Reserved tsuba can be only received at the Hungary Cup on the 16.07.2016.

Reservation is only possible until 01.07. 2016. 24:00.

Currently we have only a limited amount of patterns (5-6 pieces from each),  and for technical reasons it is not possible to make more before the competition.

To see name and number of the tsuba, move your mouse over it!

Personalized Tsuba with your name on it

Did you know? You can also have your name on the backside of KinshoTsuba, with katakana or latin letters, just like on your zekken.

It would make your tsuba totally unique and could also help you find your shinai even easier during a taikai or taraining camp.

You can have your name on any of the patterns and it is fully customizable for no additional price.

For example, you can order your club-tsuba with the names of the clubmembers on them.The name is visible only on the backside, which is looking to the tsuka or grip.

If you have any questions, write comments of contact us at


New patterns for geeks and pirates

I have made some new designs for the star wars (Galactic Empire) and aliens (Xenomorpf) fans ( I am that too), and also for priate themed ideas with some pirate flags (Pirate 1-2)and treasure like outfit (Gem). These will be printed soon to see how they look like on a real tsuba.

Don’t forget that you can design your ideas too, very easily if you download our Photoshop template at the download section. 


KinshoTsuba for the Kendo Club of Szeged

szeged2Our latest order for Kendo Club of Szeged, Hungary (Szegedi Kendó Egyesület). The pattern of the tsuba has been made from the club’s logo. It took a while to finish them –  as all tusba bodies and sticking is all made by hand – but the result is pretty nice.

IMG_3720These tsuba will be used as prizes and memorabilia for the nex Tisza Cup in Winter 2016.

If you want to have your unique tsuba for your club, competition or yourself, feel free to download our PSD template and design your pattern, or write us and we can help too.

It is said that “varietas delectat” (variety is the spice of life) so add a pinch of it to your everyday training by dressing up your kendo tsuba!
