Dear Yves.

 

Take a good look into the mouth of each, a lot of late kodzuka were made from thin metal pressings which you should be able to detect from the view inside the mouth.  One or two of these look a little doubtful but hopefully you will find them all good.

 

Enjoy.

 

All the best


Geraint

Dear Yves,

 

These images show that these kodzuka were mounted to European cutlery, the glue used is clearly visible towards the edges.  I have found that soaking them in  a jar of very hot water will degrade this glue and then it can be cleared.  

If you put your finger nail inside the lip of the front you will be able to tell if that part is thick metal or if it is very this and therefore a pressing.  

 

I don't think you have anything great but if I was to pick it would be the bottom one in your last image.  

 

All the best.


Geraint

Yves,

it is the same motive, but not the same KOZUKA!

Yes Jean, it's not that one. Mine is less 'rubbed'. But I think its by the same maker / school / ... (?).

Dear Jean,

You're completely right. Mine has less detail.

Other information is always welcome!

Thanks.
