I've had this question in my mind for a while and thought it would be a good idea to bring it into the forum.
When a newbie, or a friend of mine or whoever trys to find information about a subject, Wikipedia is usually the first place they go to.
When it comes to tsuba, Wiki only has a small passage in the main article "Japanese sword mountings":
Unlinked to the that there are smaller articles on some schools like Umetada and Shoami:
I for one think that the Tsuba deserves a larger, independent article and smaller articles on other schools too. Perhaps short articles about the most famous smiths as well. Given the importance of Wikipedia it might also be a good way to condense information from countless books into a universal format for our enjoyment.
Alas, my computer skills when it comes to making webpages or programming are lacking to say the least. So I am simply throwing this idea out there, and if there are plenty of people who agree with me about the need for such an article, perhaps something will happen.
What do you think?
