Hi All!

 

I recently picked up this tsuba because, to my newbie eye, it looked authentic, had a nice patina, and had an interesting shape. It has a signature which I think reads "Sandai Mei Myochin Saku" although I have a strong feeling it is gimei because I can't find any other examples with this signature.

 

Is anyone willing to share photos of their myochin that others might use as reference?

Hi Adam,
I have the very same tsuba with the same signature (三代目明珍作 - sandai-me Myōchin saku). It's a quite crude piece, but I'm unable to sort out if casted or genuinely forged.

Definitely cast, then. Not terribly surprised, honestly.
