    Size of yari

    Nice yari, any ideas why the hamon runs off the edge towards the bottom?
  9. I would be greatful for any assistance / opinions on this tsuba. I was thinking shoami late edo. Im only basing that on the fact that ive seen the basket weave design before. Most of the gold inlay is lost, 7.8 x 8.4cm.
  10. I have to say I personally don't find the design appealing
