  13. For sale Tsuba signed Naoaki (直鏡) + kao, full name Hata Naoaki (畑直鏡), who was also a swordsmith and the son of the 1st gen. Shōji Naokatsu (荘司直勝, 1805-1858) and grandson of Taikei Naotane (大慶直胤). All the swordsmiths of the Naokatsu line also produced tsuba, mainly in the Nobuie style, and these tsuba are often characterized by a "melted" surface with a dark smooth patina. This tsuba presents all the classic elements of Naoaki's works, it represents a wheel cart (partally in sukashi) and paulownia crests in vines by engraving. The mimi on left and right sides are engraved with kikko pattern, the typical turtle shell pattern of Nobuie. The patina is dark and smooth and overall the aspect of the tsuba is very "organic" due the melted appearance. Dimensions: 76x72 mm Thickness at seppa dai: 3 mm Thickness at mimi: 5.5 mm Price 850€ plus shipping and Paypal

    Usually the only reason to remove a mei on a tsuba is because it's gimei
