A gift part 2

Recommended Posts

So my father also gave me this tsuba as a birthday gift. He said that despite the rust he enjoyed the design and was fascinated on how such tiny holes could be drilled (and even how the drill it's self could be sharpened) would the design be shippo? The mei..I've tried. Perhaps Kofu ju..?

Hi Robert,

here below a papered tsuba signed Kōfu jū Masayuki


The design is called shippō-mon (七宝文), and was a popular textile decoration pattern.
