  Received the kamon menuki this weekend. They were well padded (took me some effort to extract them from their nest!), and look even better in person than I had hoped!

 

  Thanks Kyle!

Hi, Kyle. I am new here. I am interested in the 2 items on red cloth. Are they the same item? It looks like Jingu Kogo?

I think both pictures are the "arrow themed tanto tsuka? The fushi appears to be Takenouchi Sukune.

Thanks Paul! I'm glad you are happy with the menuki and appreciate the feedback!

Hello Kathi, yes they are the same item. I've tried to depict the kashira in the first picture and the rest of the tsuka in the second. I think you may be right about the theme as the male figure (Takenouchi Sukune) appears to be cradling a child (Ojin).

Tsuka now sold. Kathi also identified the theme as the goddess Benzaiten appearing to Minamoto Yorimitsu in a dream and presenting him with a special bow and arrow

Hi, Kyle

 

I received the tsuka. Very nice! The fushi is even better in person than in the photos!

 

Cheers!  Kathi D

Many thanks Kathi! I'm glad you're happy with it :)

Interestingly, I found a very similar tsuba to the chrysanthemum sukashi tsuba which I've listed, attributed to Ko-Hagi (which I think dates it to late Muromachi)

It was described as Choshu

Nice Grev. Hagi is in Choshu, but I've read that work referred to as 'Ko Hagi' was done by smiths who were invited from Kyoto, and who had no affiliation with later Choshu smiths.

Yes Dwain, it is a tanto sized tsuba. It's also about 4mm thick, and the nakago hitsu ana is 23mm x7mm, though it could be made to fit a wider blade if you were to remove the sekigane.
