There just isn't any pleasing some people. The trick is to stop trying.

I think ist's a 錫杖 shakujō, a Buddhist monk's ringed staff. The metal rings jingle as the monk walks, supposedly in order to alert insects and other living beings of his passage, so they might get out of the way, thus preventing him from unintentionally harming any living creature.

Guido is correct, it is a shakujo. Primarily a noisemaker as he said but in the hands of a skilled monk also a tool for self defense depending on its construction, wielded using spear or staff techniques.

I do Shaolin kung fu, and some of them did not shy away looking very much as the weapons they could be if needed.

Interesting that it should be on a tsuba, and kinda ironic to have something used to prevent harm to living things on a sword guard :)

Stephen,

 

You've got a good eye, quality is high, condition great, and it's a RARE motif.  Not a surprise the bidders were enthusiastic!
