Dear All.
 
 
I have recently recived this tsuba with an hako gaki that is too difficult to read for me. I could decipher simple Japanese scripts, as long as I can count the strokes but with I am out of my depth...
I suspect the hako gaki to be by sato kanzan.

Pictures of the tsuba are reported here:
 
Any help is welcome.
 
 
Regards
Luca
 
P.S. For didactic purposed I would be grateful if you can also post the kanji with the translation.

Parts in blue are where I lack confidence in my reading. Parts in red I am completely lost. 
I think you can figure out the translation from here, since a lot of these terms are used in tsuba study both in Japan and abroad. The year should be 1972 (autumn) if my reading is right.

One of the "lost" parts may be reference to the wagon wheels and whirlpools in the design of the tsubs....what do you think Steve?

The lost parts may be

"小透" - ko-sukashi

and "年" - year.
