Hi Hilik.

 

I can only offer a rough opinion as to age, i get the impression your tsuba was made in the 1800,s, but made to look older.

 

Mine is just an opinion from a guy with not a great knowledge of tsuba, sometimes such opinions get corrected, rustle a few feathers at the top of the tsuba tree :laughing: , which is good.

 

I don't mind being wrong, that way we all get to pick up more knowledge.

 

I will be honest, i was in two minds whether it was cast or not :dunno: , but think the latter. (i think)

 

Best.
