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.
