"Well forged soft iron plate with sukashi design of four drawer handels. The kozuka hitsu is original. The plate shows many tekkotsu (iron bones) of various sizes and shapes.

Examination of the plate in good sunlight shows this work to date ca. 1450-1500. This is at least 100 years before the HOAN school was formed. Who might have made this tsuba is unclear." (Haynes)
