"Signed: "BIZEN ju SURUGA SAKU". "This is said to be the second generation Suruga master. The plate gives you some feeling of the work of Hirata Hikozo, though I doubt there is any connection. Were this an unsigned tsuba, and without the kuchibeni (sekigane) we would not know who might have made it." (Haynes & Long)

6.70cm x 6.60cm x 0.40cm

Hakogaki by Dr. Torigoye, June 9, 1956. 2nd Class. Signed: KODO.
