Sentoku tsuba of mokko form, carved with an overall breaking wave design which continues over the edge to other side. The patina of the brass is excellant and produces a highly settled composition. The carving of the waves is also from high dignity and their rather fine execution closely resembles techniques found of the Goto-school. There are many pieces with wave motif's among Higo tsuba, but only a few of them can be attributed to the second generation Nishigaki. The shape of the hitsu-ana and seppa-dai are also reminiscent of the second Nishigaki master. (Haynes/Long)
