Hello,
 
I know this is a long shot, and I realize that this will be a long-term search, but here goes
 
I own a fully mounted Wakizashi in formal, duty mounts.
 
The mounts are:
 
Mountings (KOSHIRAE):                 Semi Formal / Formal
                                                       Finely punched nanako ground, raised gold Mon
Signed:                                           OMORI EIGEN (Omori School) on Kozuka and Fuchi
                                                       Circa: 1790 - City of Edo
 
I am able to purchase a polished Katana by the same smith, but it is unmounted and would need saya, tsuka and all koshirae.
 
The mounts I need DO NOT HAVE TO BE OMORI.  Just a similar quality nanako without decoration.  I would also be open to any plain, black undecorated mounts that my mon can be added to.
 
I am trying to obtain Koshirae with a similar, finely punched nanako ground.  The mon and Menuki can be duplicated by my jeweler, but I am hoping to find undecorated, Edo period koshirae items to apply the mon to.  The tsuba is simple, undecorated Plain Formal Shakadu alloy.
 
If possible, I would prefer a tsuba WITHOUT an opening for a kozuka.  But it isn't a deal breaker.
 
You can PM me for information and higher resolution photos.
 
Thank You,
Mark
