Hello, contributors to this thread. I have finished editing the thread so that it can be published in the JSSUS Newsletter. Names of contributors have been replaced with a letter. The first person to post is referred to as A in the whole thread. The second as B.

I have removed a few posts that did not move the discussion forward. In one case, I asked for advice on whether to keep or remove a post. It was kept. Images were moved to conserve space. Threads can go on for years and years. I chose post-#53 as the stopping point. 

If you want me to edit or remove your contribution to the thread please PM me. I will wait a week before finalising the thread and submitting it for publication.

The thread is attached as a PDF

Uesugi Kenshin's koshirae without tsuba.  I have to wonder if not having a tsuba in place caused the tsukaito to move down with use causing the gap by the kashira or if it moved down after the tsuba was lost over time with handling?

You might be right Pete, looks to be room for a thin iron plate tsuba.

I wouldn't be surprised if they were Kinko tsuba actually.  Thin copper alloy can be quite tough and more aesthetic with these koshirae.

'If a man does not keep pace with his companions, perhaps it is because he hears a different drummer.  Let him step to the music he hears, however measured or far away.'  David Thoreau.

 

'Go your own way.'  Fleetwood Mac

 

Remember if we only colected 'old iron' the rest of the tsuba world would be worthless.  Collect that which gives you most pleasure (and is affordable)
