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 started life as a commission of a “heavy” katchushi-styled tsuba, but the client changed their mind partway through its making. I decided to switch direction and adapt the shape away from a recognizeable katchushi tsuba into something more irregular. Still present are the kukurizaru (the so-called “monkey rolling toys”) sukashi. The sekigane are uncut, and the piece is ready for mounting.
72mm x 79mm x 3.5mm. Steel plate with copper sekigane, comes with a custom cloth storage pouch.
$450USD plus shipping and PayPal fees, if applicable.
Thanks for looking!
