Aesthetics and Personality
in Martial Arts

The Stemp tsuba conveys the traditional identification of the fighter with his weapon and especially with the tsuba to today's sporting arms.

The Stemp tsuba provides aesthetics and personality in martial arts such as Kendo, Iaido, Ninjutsu and Aikido. By replacing the industrially produced plastic tsuba with handicraft production and personalization, it adds noticeable value to your sporting arm. With its various punched holes it can be used for all kind of sports and weapons such as Bokken, Shinai, Katana and Shoto.

The traditional tsubas are like history books offering a comprehensive insight of time, aesthetics and personalities of the samurais. They protect you from touching the blade when striking or hitting.

The Stemp tsuba is characterised by the individual choice of materials, its personalization, its models derived from history, its design and its handicraft production. No Stemp tsuba is like the other. Most of all the model Salmon is special due to its natural grain and marking. All types of leather used are not only selected according to their function and strength but are particularly robust. Their sophisticated finishing combines extreme resilience with fine elegance.

For the production and processing of leather wildlife conservation, skin tolerability, environmental protection as well as sustainability are observed. Furthermore, we can offer you a real delight for the hand as all process steps are carried out by hand. The final, personalized Stemp tsuba is both extremely suitable for daily use and lasting. This means an invaluable step up in quality and individuality compared to conventional plastic tsubas. Choose from a wide range or design yourself.

The Stemp tsuba dento is designed according to patterns derived from history.

The Stemp tsuba salmon enchants with its exotic look, its individuality and its rich choice of colours.

The Stemp tsuba limited employs our own designs in limited editions.

Should you want to realize your own design, we would be delighted to produce a tsuba especially for you.

The Stemp tsuba is intended for use in sports. It can also be an ideal personal gift, a particularly valuable award or even a collector's item.

Your personal Stemp tsuba always bears either our hanko and your initials in Latin letters or your own hanko - also in the form of Japanese characters - on the back, delivered in a sealed gift box.

It is an individual and unique piece, completely personal, your own status symbol.

about us

Love of Martial Arts

Raised our interest in Japan, sword fighting and the life of the fighters. Our main interest, however, lies in the smallest but for us most significant detail of the sword fittings: the tsuba.

The idea

To revitalize this historic status symbol for sports developed when we studied the details in museums and collections. Initial trials to produce a tsuba ourselves proved immediately positive. The leather Stemp tsuba was born.

Attention to detail, quality and exclusivity

Are what we are used to during our work as book and leather restorers. We now transfer our long experience in museums and collections into the production of tsubas. What is inspiring us are models from Japan and the tsubashis (guardsmiths) when we create new designs. Handicraft production in our company is what we are aiming for.

Respect for nature

Wildlife conservation, sustainability and skin tolerability are our priorities. Together with our tanners we were able to choose various types of leather with a special finish, adapt them to the requirements of the tsuba and are now in a position to offer a stable concept with consistent quality. Controlled breeding, plant-based tanning  and the use of dyes on water basis are the basic principles of our work.

Leather

Is one of the most special materials we know and has always been used for tools. Depending on the finishing it has very individual properties. We make sure that only perfect pieces are used, but minor discrepancies are always possible. However, the basic material used is always of very good quality and superior to plastic as it is natural.
