My 14 year old Nephew has shown a real interest in tosogu. Therefore, I’m trying to help cultivate the next generation of NM Boarders by helping him get his first Tsuba. He’s drawn toward kinko and prefers a dragon motif in high relief. I don’t have anything appropriate in my collection, so I’m giving him a couple hundred dollars for the purchase (and that’s about all he can afford...). If you have something nice that you’d be willing to let go at that price to help start a new collector, please send me a PM.

George,

I looked through a box of stuff today thinking I had an old dragon tsuba which needed some TLC which might do for him, but alas, it seems to have escaped.  If it turns up I will let you know.

Glad you're being a good uncle, although you can now expect to show him what the tsuba is mounted on...& so on.
