Tsukamaki Service Prices.

WE ARE NOW CARRYING OUT SAYA REPAIRS!

       New Custom Made Sets of Mekugi FREE With Every Restoration!   


Because of the £5.00 increase to our prices we are going to try and offset that
by giving away free custom made sets of makugi (single or double pinned)   
with every restoration or wrap. 
1 set Bamboo (susudake) or 1 set Hardwood.
See below for details.

Black Samegawa Panels

We turn the samegawa black in the traditional way as this allows us to dictate tone and depth of colour.
Please allow 10 to 14 extra days extra as this is how long it takes us to build up the lacquer on the same.

We can sometimes lacquer the customers own same black but this depends on the condition of the original same.

 Our Aim

We here at Two Moons use traditional materials and techniques for all our wrapping, restorations and repairs even down to the kusune (pine resin and natane oil) and rice paste glues. The only exception is if the customer requests the modern alternative or if the tsuka needs a stronger glue to repair it, this would only be carried out under the customers direction. By using the most traditional materials and techniques as far as possible we try to give you back your tsuka the same as if it was done 200 years ago.


 


Saya Repairs

We are now offering iaito and shinken saya repair.
We fix the split and finish it with a copper or brass band that we make in a number of styles. Once the split is repaired the band will be made and fitted by placing it over the koiguchi. 

Style options.

Brass or copper band, plain or with patina added.

Brass or copper band textured or plain with or without a  patina.


Brass or copper band textured or plain with ornament added and with patina.

Please email us for information on price and the different styles.
