Ahh that's an epic tsuba goose, have you thought of like jewel encrusting?, or many making a silver alloy one?
I really want a workshop in my house :|

I have some silver nickle plate laying around somewhere but it would only make a tanto size tsuba
i like working with brass/bronze because that's what i come across most in my travels. Iron tsuba are a possibility as shown, i found these blanks from some electritions poping holes in a high voltage cabinet.
I just started a new tsuba in brass and will take a few pictures as i continue with the project.

I started this tsuba this week
i like working in brass because it's a softer metal and i have a small milling machine , i've done a few iron ones but i prefer brass or bronze.
