"Iron plate tsuba in mokko shape with tsuchime ji, a rough surface resembling the natural surface of stone. This creates an air of dignity, and refinement. The entire edge of the guard covered with a shakudo fukurin for artistic value or to hold missing plates on both sides. The ryohitsu-ana are of different shapes and size. Dates to Muromachi period, ca. 1500." (Long)

70.1mm x 64.7mm x 3.3mm (seppa)
