I'm new to this forum but a fan of Japanese sword arts for a couple of years now. I practice Mugai Ryu iaido for the last year and have started to create my own collection of Japanese swords and parts.
A tsuba that I've bought a while ago from Japan is something that I havent been able to validate properly and I hope that you here, with a lot more knowledge then me, can help me with this.
According to the seller it is signed Soten from the Hikone school and is from the period 1800-1850. Can you guys please help me identify this tsuba?
Thanks in advance! All information is very helpfull!
