Mito Tsuba & Matching Fuchi Kashira

Recommended Posts

My Mito tsuba and matching fuchi kashira.

Bought months apart, they're clearly made by different artists but they still happened to match perfectly regarding their size and design. :D

Tsuba: Mumei, NBTHK Hozon

F/K: Naoyoshi (Kao), NTKK

Both made from shibuichi.

Expecting George, but got Guido! Thank you.

While we're here-   the tsuba is definitely Mito.

There is a fair chance it is product of the Uchikoshi School, a popular late Edo sub-school within the larger Mito Group.

I won't go into detail as to why, and I won't bet my life on it. Unsigned is unsigned.
