Help identifying Tsuba guards

Recommended Posts

Hello, everyone
I'm trying to identify or find up with all kinds of information about this tsubas. All I know from my bad knowledge is that one is the size of a wakizashi, and the other one is from a tachi sword. I also attach the dimensions of each one, and I would be very grateful if you could comment.
Any help is appreciated
Thanks in advance, Sven

1. Butterfly tsuba

size - 80/78 mm

thickness - 4mm

nakago - 28/8 mm

2. tachi tsuba :

Hi Sven,

First of all welcome to the board !

 

Then, by NMB rules you have to sign your post (completing your profile)

 

As far as the 4 tsuba are concerned I would guess as it quite obvious

#1 Shoami

#2 Heianjo

#3 Heianjo

#4Choshu as per the Kanji on the right - 長州

 

Best regards

Without the mei on no 4 I would have gone Echizen Kinai lol.
