  1. It is a rare case, but not entirely unheard of. Please discount that the credibility of the terushige I have shown the reference image is not always certain. http://kako.nipponto.co.jp/swords2/KT221701.htm
  2. That's right. These frogs are mass-produced and are often the doppelganger brothers I see in the market. I think that the frog has a prototype somewhere, just as the oni-tsuba originated from the Mito school. However, I am not sure about the school of design.
  3. Hmmm, the tattooed frog is about to evolve into a mammal. I am wondering if there is an original for this design that I sometimes see. https://www.jauce.com/auction/v777207162
  4. Dale. The image is broken and will not display. Is it the frog you are referring to? I don't like any of them, at least not the ones that are resident.
  5. For Apr. The staple products. https://www.jauce.com/auction/j723046718 https://www.jauce.com/auction/n460821641 https://www.jauce.com/auction/o467624970 https://www.jauce.com/auction/c903087381 https://www.jauce.com/auction/w466484297 https://www.jauce.com/auction/s814150095 https://www.jauce.com/auction/l669252836 https://www.jauce.com/auction/x773571678 It is confidently lined up with the sample, but there is much room for debate just by comparing the two signatures. https://www.jauce.com/auction/q432923316 The lotus-leaf pattern, which was the specialty of Shoami-Denbey in Akita and Tachibana-Takaie in Morioka, is also a standard product of cast reproductions. https://www.jauce.com/auction/v770491209 This tiger pattern looks like an inlay and is quite skillful. However, the splashes are just gold painted on the ground iron. https://www.jauce.com/auction/b549081380 I thought that Masachika's tiger, which is mentioned in Dr. Torigoe's book, was philosophical and nihilistic. reference sample https://matsukaze.thebase.in/items/9814604 In addition to casting burrs, there are areas where nanako is not uniform. Nanako, which is engraved one by one or in units of several, is less sensitive to uneven surfaces. https://www.jauce.com/auction/q442624655 reference sample http://ginza.choshuya.co.jp/sale/gj/r2/09/09_satsuma_tsuba.htm These may be castings or die-cut from steel plates. The details are different, but they are repeatedly exhibited and should be avoided. https://www.jauce.com/auction/c897140821 https://www.jauce.com/auction/k476029332 https://www.jauce.com/auction/n459975707
  6. Yes, that's the traditional "蛟龍文(Jiao Long Wen)" design from ancient China. https://www.jauce.com/auction/q448882361
  7. Oh! That's right. They are the wandering or rolling dragons.
  8. This is an unfinished kit for the buyer to complete the Rain Dragon tsuba? https://www.jauce.com/auction/k512095566 And the buyer damaged it. In less than three months, he will sell his failed work to someone else. It is a wonder that a buyer appears. https://www.jauce.com/auction/f480979961 https://www.jauce.com/auction/n458395919
  9. I think he himself was surprised that it sold for 200,000 yen. https://www.jauce.com/auction/t801297034 Quickly, the newcomer to the market seems to be dutifully working his way to the low end. https://www.jauce.com/auction/s819666721
  10. That is exactly what it says"出羽秋田住正阿弥傳七(dewa akita-no-ju shoami denshichi)". This one has a similar design. https://www.choshuya.co.jp/senrigan/竹林図鐔 無銘 秋田正阿弥/鍔/秋田正阿弥
  11. Well, if that is the case, the following posts may already be useless for original poster. These scratches have already been repaired by "Togishi" (polishers). They cannot be completely erased, but for a 17th century samurai, they were not a practical problem.
  12. Yes, it is. The painter drew without thinking of attaching the tsuba to the sword. A gunsmith who made a strange gun might have made it without thinking of riding a horse.
  13. Judging from the touch of the paint and the color of the pigment, it is certainly due to the same painter. He drew without thinking about actually attaching the tsuba to the katana. I found such an item. It seems more difficult to hit than a bow and arrow. I'm wondering if this could be used as a firearm, aside from the stirrup. https://www.thefirearmblog.com/blog/2021/04/13/double-barreled-stirrup-pistol/
  14. It's a half joking, tailored to Dale's humor. In reality, the samurai are not allowed to quickly escape from the rampaging horse. The Japanese cavalry shoot with a long bow of 7 feet. It is troublesome to embed the video here, so please see the link. https://twitter.com/naoejou/status/1380500992798560266
