So Christian,
You are saying that all this 'interesting stuff' going on on the left side here was made that way?
Is this common for this school, or period?
Why? Did he just run out of iron, or was it wabi-sabi for the times?

No, I couldn't read the listing.
It has a Ko-Katchushi look. But it looks a bit small, and fat. And the hitsu-ana looks original to me. I don't think many, if any Ko-katchushi had any to begin with.
Does the listing say what it is suspected to be.
I'm sure it could be made in later times to look like that. I personally like it's look. The iron is very organic looking.
Lovely in fact. :)
What does the description say?

Hello Mark,

The description says that the seller feels it is a very old piece ,but unsure.
He goes on to desribe the bones visible in the iron and how it is a tasteful piece.
The seller says it is the production of Kacchushi,Kanayama,or Syouami and that there is no mei.


Size is 68mmX67mmX4mm

Nice feel ,I would be more than happy to have that one.

Cheers
Moss

I have a feeling it is either Owari or a Myochin. I doubt it being Katchushi or Kanayama. I think the period could well be early Edo or Momoyama max.

Hi Moss

From what I can understand you were pretty much bang on. Good job ;) .

It certainly is picking up. Yesterday it was 1,500 yen and I was tempted, but if other people want it so badly I must concur ... being the gentleman I am :freak:

Henry,

There is something that appeals to me with this one.
Shame we can't bid from Australia on Yahoo JP

Cheers

My impression of this piece is that it likely a Edo period Katchushi tsuba. I come to this conclusion based up it thickness, overall size, and style of rim. The dote mimi and overall thickness and small size is commonly seen in Edo period Katchushi tsuba. Just my opinion. Overall I like the tsuba. Thanks for sharing Henry :D



Yours truly,
David Stiles
