The Fuchi (sleeve) and Kashira (buttcap) are made of Alloy. The Tang of the sword is secured by two Mekugi (pegs). Two Menuki (ornaments) are on each side of the Tsuka.
TSUBA: The tsuba is used to protect your hand from sliding onto the blade during thrusts.
HABAKI(blade collar): is one-piece brass construction. the main point of the habaki is to make the saya tight to the blade, so it is normal if there is a scratch on.
SEPPAS(spacer): Two Seppas secure the Tsuba( if the tsuba is not so tight after a long time, you can disassemble the sword and put more seppas there.
