  • 国産木刀製造業の危機 | 2019年秋、木刀や杖などの国産木製武器製造の今後について、ブログ記事を掲載しました。当時、国産木製武器の約4割程の生産量を占めていた工房・堀之内登製作所が閉鎖し、それ以降、宮崎県都城の国産木製武器の生産力は急落しました。残された3つの木刀工房では、それまで堀之内工房で製作されていた木製武器の製造も担うようになりました。それから1年の月日が経過しました。現在の木刀製造現場の状況はどのように変化していったのでしょうか?

縁頭・居合刀&真剣

About our Fuchi/Kashira lineup

The Fuchi (縁) is a hilt collar between the tsuka and the tsuba. It serves as a reinforcment for the Tsuka (handle). The tang of the sword goes into the tsuka through the opening in the fuchi.
The Kashira (頭) is a pommel on the end of the tsuka, which serves, similarly to the Fuchi, as reinforcement for the Tsuka (handle). It usually features a hole that is used to secure the tsukaito (wrapping). Some kashira, and notably Suigyu (water buffalo) made Kashira do not have a hole, which forces to slightly change how the maki (wrapping) is done.

As other pieces and components of the sword mounting, the Fuchi and Kashira used to be simple and plain, but became thoroughly decorated and worked during the Edo period, developing into decorative ornaments over time.
Fuchi and Kashira design have two main features: the shape and the engraved design. Although many kind of shapes exist, the two most common shapes are "Jidai" and "Higo". Jidai that could be translated as "classic" refer to a flat Kashira, and Higo, which was an ancient province of South Japan, refer to a rounded Kashira (which was typical of Higo swords).
Note that the Tsuka length is measured from the tip of the Kashira, which makes the Tsuka length slightly vary depending on the Kashira shape.
Fuchi and Kashira come in pair and their design is usually (almost always) are based on the same thematic.

All models are, of course, entirely handmade in Japan.
