Over the years, I have had the entire spectrum of correspondences from clients, ranging from a brief note with the tsuka to a detailed correspondance cover updates and photos of every step in the process.

Here's a perfect example of the latter, where I was asked to share photos and descriptions of everything, including:

  • The tsuka before disassebly.
  • All the handle components as they're removed.
  • Selecting the new same' (rayskin).
  • Applying the new rayskin.
  • Ito color options.
  • And, "action photos" of the wrapping.

Below are some of the photos shared with this client.  A several of items of note, these don't include the tying of the end knots, the client had me number the photos to make the sequence easier to follow, and because this is Tsumami-maki (pinched wrap), I always stitch the ito at mid-crossover to ensure consistency in the shape and resilency of the wrap.
