"Large thick iron plate of kawari shape with overlaid and inlaid brass, gold and silver in a heavy mixture of the metals as an abstract landscape of rare quality. The surface is well hammered. The hitsu-ana is of kozuka shape and in the style of the Shoami school.
Signed: 'DENSHASUI HARUSADA' H 00862.A. ca. 1600.
The Denshasui inscription means that he was a country bird, a man who was not of the great cities, and a rustic. This is no work of a rustic, so we can guess that he used this name as a jest and to show just the opposite, that he was very sophisticated." (Haynes & Long)

"A thick iron plate in slight oval form that appears to have been cut down due to edge being filed. Has the same overlaid and inlaid brass, silver and shakudo in a heavy mixture of the metals as an abstract representation. The rim has a square edge, known as kaku mimi, which gives an appearance of firmness. There are two sukashi openings on the right side representing a kanji. The surface is well hammered and black lacquer is present. The kozuka-ana is referred to askatabari hangetsu-ana and the kogai-ana is suhama-ana. Both are original to the piece. A very old tsuba dating ca. 1500 or earlier." (Long)
