I cut out all of the pieces to Tokijin!
I bought four 1/4” x 4” x 36” Balsa wood pieces at Michaels
The blade itself is the full 36”, 2” go through the tsuba.
The hilt is 10” long, two peices go on the outside of the 2” of the blade and there are two pieces of the hilt on the inside to fill int he gap.
I cut everything out with an X-acto Knife. Not as epic as a power tool, I know lol
