In July 2014 there was a thread on udenuki-no-ana - two holes near the edge of the tsuba. A year earlier, there was another thread on the shape of the nakago-ana.
I have just acquired the attached tsuba, recently bought in Tokyo, which has a hole at the top and bottom, thus presumably not udenuki-ana. The hitsu-ana are unusually narrow and there is a notch in one side of the seppa. The nakago-ana is of oblong shape rather than pointed.
Can anyone shed any light on this tsuba please?
In the same post, kissakai posted the other attached image. I have also acquired two tsuba, again bought recently in Tokyo, with the same motif. Is it known what the design is (flowers, pine, snowflakes, or?) please?
Thanks and regards
