Here is a tsuba I just missed to win at a Yahoo Japan auction. :(

The description in the old NBTHK certificate is still puzzling me: 樋彫鐔 - toi-bori tsuba (gutter-like carving tsuba?).
Someone is able to confirm (or amend) my transcription?
Thanks for reading.
Mauro

樋 = groove; it can mean gutter, but I doubt they had that in mind ... ;-)

Could they mean a gutter cover or lid?

The kanji 樋 can mean 'water pipe'. Commonly this decoration in English is call 'piping'. Correlation maybe??? John
