Dear all

I would like to part with a beautiful ji-sukashi tsuba which was judged as „Den Kanayama“ in 2018 by the NBTHK. I bought the tsuba from Ginza Choshuya (http://ginza.choshuy.../d109/index.htm) about one year ago. It comes in a nice custom fitted high-grade box with cushion.

Four gourds are shown in a square. The gourds‘ outlines are carved in ji-sukashi and are highlighted in ko-sukashi way which creates a quite intriguing design. I believe that this design is a reference to the famous koan „How to catch a catfish with a gourd“ by Ashikaga Yoshimochi (further details can be found here: https://www.kyohaku..../fushigi.html).The Tsuba is packed with granular tekkotsu and has a delicate iron surface. Please note that the description in the Hozon paper is inaccurate in one aspect: the mimi is a ko-niku kaku mimi.

Dimensions: 6.3 cm x 6.0 cm
Thickness: 0.6 cm at the seppa-dai and 0.62 at the rim
Age: Muromachi to Momoyama period

Asking price: EUR 1,200.00 plus shipping. Payment via PayPal is possible.

Best,

Chris

One very good image from Ginza and a couple of mine showing the tekkotsu and yakite on the mimi:

:dunno: Really cannot believe, that nobody grabs this bargain?! :dunno:

I can very well remember the smooth feeling of the wonderful steel texture, when i inspected it with my own hands. :Drool:

The pictures don´t do it justice at all!!!
