Chen Practical Plus

stuck tsuka on my japanese katana?

the tsuka on my Paul chen practical plus katana has become stuck after my brother decided to remove the tsuba. So there is no tsuba, just the tsuka and blade. does anyone know how to remove the blade from the tsuka so that i can put the tsuba back on?

You will need a cleaning kit, or simply the metal hammer.

But most likely, your brother might have screwed up the mekugi or worse, the holes in the tsuka.

Take it to a Japanese swordsmanship teacher (Kendo, Iaido, doesn't matter).

Or watch Youtube videos describing how to do it:
