  1. Ian, that is really beautiful. The craftsmanship is definitely high. Can you please post more pictures? Regards, Ed
  2. Ian, Maybe you find this also interesting https://www.christies.com/en/lot/lot-4680029
  3. Hi Ian, That's a stunning tsuba. I have a tanto with similar fittings. Regards Ed
  4. Hi Barry and Mark, Good point about the position of the hitsu ana. You guys are probably right about the fact it's modern. Lesson learned. Regards, Ed
  5. Hi John, thank you for your opinion. Highly appreciated. The colors are in reality darker. I was expecting it was made in the Edo period. Regards, Ed
  6. Picked up this large katchushi tsuba at a military fair. Normally not the place to found a tsuba. Diameter is 9.5 cm. From my novice point of view it's beautiful crafted. What do you guys think of this tsuba? Feel free to comment.
  7. Hi Bruce, The pattern is called Sayagata. A pattern of interlocking Manji. Regards, Ed
  8. Hi Barry, Hope this photo will help. Regards, Ed
  9. Some really nice habaki. Here's one of mine.
  10. Hi Jussi, Both beautiful blades but personally I like the left one the most. I find the sori more attractive and I like the smaller kissaki. Regards, Ed
  11. Geraint, your absolutely right about the craftsmanship. It's a joy to observe. Regards, Ed
  12. Thank you guys! Cloisonne and shippo are the search terms to use. Not much hits but it's a start. HIrata school seems plausible. I'll try to research the Hirata and Shibata school.
  13. Just to share with you my tanto koshirae with some unusual fittings. The copper gilt fuchi-kashira and menuki are decorated with colored enamels. I have searched for other similar fittings and unfortunately can't find any. Does anyone know more about this type of fittings? Maybe a school to research? Please feel free to comment. Regards, Ed
