My Mito tsuba and matching fuchi kashira.

Bought months apart, they're clearly made by different artists but they still happened to match perfectly regarding their size and design. :D

Tsuba: Mumei, NBTHK Hozon

F/K: Naoyoshi (Kao), NTKK

Both made from shibuichi.

Expecting George, but got Guido! Thank you.

While we're here-   the tsuba is definitely Mito.

There is a fair chance it is product of the Uchikoshi School, a popular late Edo sub-school within the larger Mito Group.

I won't go into detail as to why, and I won't bet my life on it. Unsigned is unsigned.
