Hi

I am thinking about where my tsuba collection goes next

In the short term I buying any strange or irregular shaped tsuba

I'd prefer to buy from a NMB member rather than being directed to website links

Wow. Fascinating tsuba Scott, and I know we are off topic now. But they worked that tsuba like it was made of clay :o

Yes, off topic now, but I asked because I have photos of a tsuba once lent to me that reminded me of Scott Irey's tsuba - thanks for replying Scott.  I'll have to dig them out and write up a little story and post it on a separate topic referring to this.  It certainly comes under the heading of "strange tsuba", so maybe it is on topic???

 

Bestests,

BaZZa.

Hi Stephen

Thanks for the offer but I was looking for the more unusual shape rather than size such as below

I also have a 'wan' tsuba and one which has cloud like cut outs on the mimi

Thanks Richard G

Would have been exactly what I was looking for but as you said the condition is too poor
