This time I'm offering an excellent Kanayama piece with a great trail of custody and appreciation: ex Mariusz, ex Jim Gilbert collection (see http://home.earthlin...rt/kanayama.htm). This is a text-book example, small in diameter with thick rim, dished plate and lumpy tekkotsu. The colour is blackish and the surface looks wet and lustrous, typical for Kanayama and Owari sukashi tsuba.

Outstanding piece! Grab this one at a bargain price if you already are/ or are willing to become a serious iron tsuba collector. The money is IMHO much better invested in this high-end tsuba than in a low-end ebay auction sword...

Good luck,

I'm offering a price reduction for limited time only:


$1700 including worldwide shipping, PayPal extra


It's not cheap, but worth every penny for a good Kanayama tsuba with iron which melts in your hands (not literally)  :Drool:  This is a final call before returning into my collection  :glee:
