  1. Hello, Thanks for pointing out Umetada school. I found this tsuba in wakayama, from Umetada school too. It show some similarities in the mimi and dot inlay. So Umetada seems to be a good call for my tsuba.
  2. Indeed. It would be a great daisho if it were in good condition
  3. Thanks Dale, that's a great find. Moreover this daisho has a mei that seems to be Umetada. That give me a direction to do further research in the umedata school. Many thanks
  4. The mei is "Shoami" for the tsuba 3
  5. With the kanji : 正之
  6. Hello, Last kanji is Yuki, so Masayuki Looks good to me (not cast)
  7. Hello, As it is Umetada school, could it be Ume flower shape & design ?!
  8. No problem for the off topic Thanks for last sharing. Nice kozuka, far better than my tsuba !
  9. I own 2 nice aizu shoami tsuba but for this one I didn't recognize the aizu shoami style, that's why I requested opinion. I notice the one you share has same "grid" design. So could be a possibility, but always hard to compare kinko with iron. Anyway thanks again for your input. I appreciate
  10. Thanks for the suggestion. I didn't thought to Aizu Shoami school because the workmanship is not so close of they usual works, but why not ?! Shoami styles are so large ! I will try to see if I found something similar or close in that school. Thanks again
  11. Many thanks Mauro, these informations are very interesting ! I wasn't aware of this ceremony. I wondered why there is a fish head, but make sense now with your explanation ! Regarding the school, what about Mito ?! Thanks
  12. Hello, I have no idea what school this tsuba could be. The patern show an Oni and holly leaves. Do you know if it is related to legend or a particular theme ? If you have an opinion, I would love to hear it
  13. Thanks for the information !
