Tsuba with 4 mei

Recommended Posts

With Daruma being there, it's likely they are omamori which are small amulets dedicated to Buddhism and Shinto kami.

Interesting. They do look like artisan names, almost as if four different artists added four different styles of zogan.

I have a Shonai school tsuba on file with 16 confirmed mei on them ;-) How's that for collaboration?! They all did one piece of design on the tsuba and signed it.
