Not trying to pitch for anyone just sharing this with y’all. The plate was well forged with evidence of being well uniformly laminated. These may be considered toketsu (not sure), if anyone wants a piece with this feature. Look at photos showing the mimi, and you see fine even masame lines showing well controlled forging. this seems like a good price so I wanted to share. Maybe someone is in the market for a large tsuba? Only 4 hrs to go so hopefully price not driven up with this post. best bet w eBay is to use a ‘sniping’ tool also, whereby the app bids at the last second for you, thereby hiding your max bet from others (they could bid up and over you otherwise, before the end)

Hi Grant, it has a very nice wet chocolate look to it. I would be interested seeing what someone like Ford's opinion on ithid tsuba is. 98mm is huge. Thanks for sharing.

Hi All,

 

Just my two cents worth, but all I'm seeing is modern 'featureless' metal plate, as for rim laminations....looks like tool marks to me.

 

Cheers,

Appreciate your help!

Hi Jean,

 

Do you have an ebay account? If so all you have to do is select "contact seller" under the persons profile.

Thank you Omar,

I think E-Bay does not  support a private contact with the seller, so they don't supply any information - at least I cannot find it..


Regards,

Jean C.

If you have an eBay account you can contact sellers no prob. If the lines in the rim are tool marks then I feel pretty dumb. I really don’t know if the tsuba is worth the money but it did tempt me. Nobody went for it.

Grant,

 

Don't feel dumb, we all make mistakes....I certainly do.  As far as the value of the tsuba is concerned....whatever soneone is willing to pay!

 

Cheers,

Relisted at $170. Seller certainly proud of the mimi as 1/2 the pictures show the tsuba on
It’s side, so not showing much more than what? I think those are forging laminations. I think the seller probably knows it, on some level at least.
