The Fuchi/Kashira Orphanage

Recommended Posts

As per the menuki thread below, this is for people to post their orphaned fuchi or kashira to see if there is a match out there somewhere.

Whilst a plain buffalo horn kashira can be used with an orphaned fuchi, it is nice to find a match sometimes.

I do strongly suggest people take pics next to a ruler or give dimensions, as this makes a match much easier. People may also post their ishizuki, kojiri or kurigata if they are a matching set looking for a partner. Good, clear pics please. And would be nice to hear if anyone does find a match and concludes a deal to know if this endeavour is of any use.

I'll go first, below's a Hamano or Nara shibuichi kashira with Jujurin and deer. Wakizashi or tanto sized. It would be nice to reunite or find a matching fuchi to complete the set, along with the Kozuka that came with it.

 

Regards,

Lance

Thanks Brian! Great thread :beer:

 

I would love to find a partner (fuchi) for this lovely katana sized Higo kashira. If anyone sees a suitable mate please let me know, I'm willing to offer a reward to the "matchmaker" ;)

Edit: Apologies for lack of ruler/exact measurements but this size is for daito mount.

orphan fuchi, signed Tsunenao seems a good match for the reference $100 if anyone needs it, or happy to buy a matching kashira. It looks better in hand, the flash and super close up were not kind.

Hello folks, looking for some help locating the matching kashira for this set. Would like to purchase it for a current mount that I am doing that I would really prefer not to make a buffalo horn kashira for :)
