"Iron ji-sukashi tsuba with a design of a bridge for Koto. 'Nobility' is the keyword to describe this design. It is aesthetically satisfying in every detail. The surface of the plate is splendid and appears to be a little wet. The luster of the patina is in tune with the softly structured surface. Wonderful tekkotsu is to been seen in the rim.
Dates ca. 1500-1550." (Haynes & Long)
