Have had for a few years now and have seen a couple of others offered for sale of pretty much identical 'shell' design ,the only differences being the chiselled maker's name- the others seeming to be more extensive. 

I was wondering if someone would care to offer an opinion as to the authenticity of this tsuba.

73 x 67 x 5 mm.   Thick and heavy. Seems good iron to me.

Not KINAI, I think. The surface of an ECHIZEN KINAI TSUBA is very smooth and polished from the work of the craftsman. This one looks cast to me,  but to be sure, you have to see it in hand.


Regards,

Thanks once again Jean but once again not what I had thought but of course experience is what counts and my reason for 'baring' what I have is to try and learn just what is what.

A bit trickier than expected.
