View Full Version : pig leather tsuukamaki

Hi guys,

Just wondering if any of you guys out there have ever used a sword or has a sword with pig leather used for the tsukamaki, and how you find it? Is it durable, how does it compare to other leathers such as cow hide etc..??

Kind Regards,

I personally have never seen pig leather, but I know that deer leather is commonly used and it is quite nice in terms of how it feels and it is very durable.
