"The plate of this tsuba is very thin and uniform and the quality of iron is splendid. The sukashi elements are a mon, manji and three orbs representing possibly the sun and moons. Both kozuka-ana appear original to the design suggesting that this tsuba was used on a katana. The rim is very large and semi-flat on its edges." (Long)


10.30cm x 10.50cm x 0.15cm (seppa), 0.40cm (rim).
