They make the point that they are not confirming the signature and that it may be fake. 

Here is a Google translation of what they wrote:

"UmaTadashi is an exhibition of brass Sword brim of Zaimei. 

Size vertical about 83 horizontal about 81 a thickness of about 4 edge thickness of about 5.5 mm core hole vertical about 27 horizontal about 8 mm buried gold containing genuine fake do not know. 
Beautiful UmaTadashitsuba thank you."

Gee, people. Just look at the workmanship. 

 

Sorry, that is not me, that's my evil twin. I am trolling today. Brian! A whip! A whip!


Best regards

I could add the handcuffs, Marius LoL

Thierry,

Generally such Tsuba are so scarce (I have seen only one - by THE Umetada Myoju) that they never reach auction houses. Hint, it is not papered. But it is a very good one.
