Hi guys !
I've bought 6 months ago a wakizashi, with a very nice koshirae, though it is not "en suite". I've sent it to NBTHK shinsa but unfortunately the signature of the blade was judged as gimei (sigh) . Anyway, I stil want to submit the koshirae for shinsa, for I think it is genuine and good looking.
While waiting for the judgment, I ask your help to translate the signature of the kozuka and the fuchi.
The kozuka (and the tsuba) shows the chinese general Kuan Yu on his horse over a bridge. The fuchi (and kashira) shows insects among grass.
