Reshaping a Tsuka

bokken-progress

I made this bokken some years ago as a gift for my sensei. He was recently finding that the tsuka (handle) was not feeling quite right in his hand so I spent time this past weekend reshaping the piece. This bokken is a combination of purple heart and hickory and one of my favorites. It has been nice to have it back for a visit.
