  1. Really nice tsuba regardless of what the subject is. Rob M
  2. Interesting to see what I presume is museum collection ref no 59 actually stamped rather than painted. Rob m

    A gift part 2

    So my father also gave me this tsuba as a birthday gift. He said that despite the rust he enjoyed the design and was fascinated on how such tiny holes could be drilled (and even how the drill it's self could be sharpened) would the design be shippo? The mei..I've tried. Perhaps Kofu ju..?

    A gift

    I was given this tsuba as a birthday gift. Its 7cmx6.6x0.3cm depicting a village scene inlaid in copper. Tsuchime finish with a fukurin (not sure what type of metal?) Would it be a hammer or a liadle depicted? I guess late edo Shoami work? Many thanks Rob M
  5. Which UK dealer is that? Rob M
  6. It's certainly is "chunky" in parts, but I feel it still has that Alaska style.
  7. I would have said Akasaka. From the photos it looks a little worse for ware or that could just be a bad pic. Rob M

    Hot stamps

    I presume this would be classed as a tempo tsuba. Ive been reading the excellent article below. I see the hatched kakine but can't identify the other? http://www.users.on.net/~coxm/?page=TsubaII
  9. Thank you all for your help Rob m
  10. Could someone be so kind to translate this mei. I've spent a few hours trying but have come up with just saku as the final kanji ????
  11. Looking for a mounted wakizashi in good state of polish in the UK as I'm not a fan of dealing with customs at the moment.

    eBay regrets

    Hi Mario, I've heard of shakudo rims being added but never iron. Does anyone have an example?
