retro fitting shirasaya sword?
by aaron waltz

I have a shirasaya sword i would like to retrofit to traditional katana components with a universal handle with no holes in it. I know what I need to get but the handles I've seen have no holes so you can drill holes to match the original holes in the tang. How do i get that correct other than weaken the tang drilling completely new holes in the tang vs trying to get the originals lined up seems to be tricky so it isn't sloppy cause there drilled in wrong spot.?
