|Handle (Tsuka) Wrapping Service
(Tsuka) wrapping service has been satisfying customers for over 23 years. Our continued success is a result
of our skilled craftsmen who have been 'Japanese'
trained in the subtle nuances that make a wrapped handle
instead of merely acceptable.

|We recommend that customers scrutinize the wood core/foundation of their Handles for shrinkage, cracks and other damage, especially in the area of the Mekugi-ana (peg hole). Most Japanese Swords are at least 70+ years old and in many cases have not been well cared for. Wood deteriorates and if damage is obvious, safety becomes an issue a complete replacement of the Handle is often recommended.
|Note: Please do not send swords or handles without first calling or e-mailing us to confirm turnaround time and to receive any special shipping instructions.
It is recommended that you use the U.S. Postal Service to mail your handles or swords and to make sure to send them via Insured Mail. Unlike UPS, FED-EX or DHL, our Letter Carrier will not leave your property at our door.
As a special favor to all of us here at the Fred Lohman Company, please no Packing Peanuts!
If you are unable to remove the handle from the sword, it is best to send the entire sword but return postage/insurance charges will be added. Do not send your Sword Bag.
We try to maintain a turn-around time of 3-4 weeks for Handle Repairs.
