Nice Later Tsuba With Good Steel On Ebay - Cheap
Posted 09 November 2018 - 01:45 AM
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)

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.

does anyone know how to contact this seller (oltique-24 in AICHI, Japan) directly?
Appreciate your help!

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..

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!

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.
