    Tsuba Material

    Interesting read. So what would be the general consensus on what this tsuba is made from? Rob M

    Tsuba Material

    Picked this up a few months back. It was described as being made from Shibuichi. I was wondering if it is in fact just patinated copper due to the copper colour visible where the seppa have worn? In hand the tsuba is much darker than pics. Many thanks Rob M
  4. Really nice tsuba regardless of what the subject is. Rob M
  5. 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
  8. Which UK dealer is that? Rob M
  9. It's certainly is "chunky" in parts, but I feel it still has that Alaska style.
  10. 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
  12. Thank you all for your help Rob m
  13. 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 ????
