A very imposing and powerful iron piece with a strong black patina. The composition is simple and geometric, which suggests it being made at the Kanayama Shrine in Nagoya. The image below shows a very similar piece attributed to the Kanayama group. The central motif is of a 'MANJI'. Very well done. Possibly dates to late Muromachi period.
7.45cm x 7.00cm x 0.56cm (face) x 0.60cm (edge)
