Hilt of tachi (sword)
Japanese tachi (Military fighting sword), the hilt of the tachi consists of two pieces of magnolia wood joined together longitudinally to form the grip. The wooden grip is covered on each side by a fillet of white ray-skin, and is bound with two flat pieces of gold-coloured cotton tape twisted about each other. The plain brass ferrule (fuchi) is secured to the end of the handle by two brass pins.
