KYO SUKASHI or SAOTOME ?


Return to Tsuba Collective
 
Provenance: Elliott D. Long POA
An iron plate tsuba that was mounted on a large katana, pierced in negative sukashi of 48 petals. The spokes join in the center of the plate to the seppa-dai. Some of the spokes appear to be inlaid, some are not but it is very hard to tell based on the age and quality of the work. The iron appears well forged and finished to represent great strength.

9.80cm x 0.50cm
