A battle-worn handguard that was once mounted on an Inazuman blade.
For those adept in the art of the sword, the tsuba is a defense from the edge of an opponent’s blade. For beginners, it is a defense made for their own right hand, to protect it from itself.
Ayaka is the only character who’s using this material for now.
