Tsukamaki means wrapping the handle. It is rewrapping or wrapping new ito on the handle of Japanese hilt. The most common wrapping method is "Tsumamimaki", the ito "pinched" at the crossing, followed by "Hinerimaki", where the ito was folded over twice at a 90 degree angle at the crossing. Tachi were usually done in "Hiramaki", the ito simply crossed over.
