Tsuba with 8 corner?


Recommended Posts

This was oddly not listed in some of my books on tsuba and not easily answered via google. 

 

Octagon is supposedly 'Hachikakukei' in Japanese so perhaps Hachikakukei gata is the or a fitting description for it😶

Neat!

This checks off two interests of mine: nihonto and marine archaeology. What an interesting piece! Got any story behind it to share?

Hello Chris, 

 

I'm trying to learn the story behind it. It might take a little time and study but these are from a deceased collector's grandfather. I'm calling "these" because there are 78 reasons for it. Wait for tomorrow. I have to make a room to take pictures :)

I couldn't figure out what kind of tsuba is this. More-Gata?

" Hakkakugata " with special thanks to Brian Tschernega for providing this information.
