Hi Everyone,

 

Can someone post some examples or references of Tanabe Yasuhira work who studied under Shigenaga the 5th generation Jingo master? I think he was located in Kumamoto during the late Edo Period circa 1850 and worked in a Jingo School style.  Attached are photos of a tsuba that might be his work.  The design of Banana Palm was made popular by the 5th generation master.  This is a large tsuba measuring at 7.8 X 8.5 cm, 4.6 mm at rim.  I presented 1:1 scale photos of this tsuba to Bob Haynes in November and received very positive feedback about it from him.  I will present this tsuba to Bob in person at the upcoming Tampa Japanese sword show next month.  This tsuba will be going to the NBTHK shinsa later this year.  More information is available at my website: http://www.tsubaotak...!gallery4/c1jbk.  It is the last tsuba on the webpage.

P.S.  Here is a example by a Kumamoto artist during the late Edo Period: http://www.tsurugino...1_3/b00027.html ,

Hi Everyone,

 

Well I did some digging in my reference books and I wasn't able to find anything.  Pete Klein since you were the one who first referenced Tanabe Yasuhira work for my above tsuba on another topic.  Could you please provide some references or additional examples?

 

 

 

P.S. I did find in my research a funny music video that made me think of you Pete correcting all my grammar mistakes on NMB.  Enjoy...

Hi Peter,

 

My reply to your post have been lost.  Thank you.  Yonemitsu Tahei was the student of Tanabe Yasuhira who worked in a Hayashi School style.  Still looking for references that link Tanabe Yasuhira as a student of the 5th generation Shimizu master Shigenaga who was active in the in the mid 1800s.  From how the nakago hitsu-ana is finished on my tsuba it looks like the work of Shigenaga or one of this many students who were all know to copy his style down to the finish of the nakago hitsu-ana.  Attached are some cropped photos of both sides of the nakago-hitsu ana for reference.

Hi Everyone,

 

Here is a scan of a photo of some of Yonemitsu Tahei work that was referenced by NBTHK in the magazine article (02-2010, No. 637) that Peter posted as a reference for Tanabe Yasuhira.  Both wonderful tsuba examples are clearly done in a Hayashi School style.  Sometime in the future I would love to have an example of Yonemitsu-sama fine work in my humble collection.  :)
