Evening all! I've just finished up a small series of tsuba as a way to dive back into the work after my return to Canada from England (more about this in my blog this evening).

 

This is study piece of an another antique Akasaka tsuba, which I chose in order to work with the broad, sweeping lines of the grasses. I’ve also used the opportunity to make some of the lines much finer than on the original, something that I enjoy for the challenge.

 

80mm x 81mm x 4.2mm. Steel plate with copper sekigane, comes with a custom-fitted kiribako.

 

$750USD plus shipping and PayPal fees, if applicable.

 

Thanks for looking!

Birds of prey and dragons, eh? I'm open to commission ideas, guys. ;)

 

And thanks! I really appreciate the feedback, it's been a nutty few months since I got back from England.

Hi

I am the lucky buyer of this tsuba

I've bought a few from Kevin over the last year and each one was a star

 

Then what a bummer - So many excellent tsuba to choose from

I sat with my wife for over an hour deciding which one to buy

 

Kevin please please please trickle feed them next so I any be able to afford a couple

 

Great work
