Ume blossom menuki

Recommended Posts

I'm looking for a pair, suitable for a katana, of plum blossom menuki. This is for a restoration project so the aesthetic is quite specific. Ideally the older simpler styles, Umetada-ish, if you know what I mean. Gold blossom (uttori) shakudo/yamagane base etc.

thanks Brian :thumbsup:


Hi Carlos, yes, I saw those, not really the look I'm aiming for, and they do look a little 'raggedy' tbh. I dont want Jyuyo quality but there's a particular level of quality that seems to define mid level working bushi koshirae that I'm after.

Thanks Mark, kind offer but not really the sort of 'feel' I'm aiming for. :)


And thank you Manuel, those are indeed a good possibility. I'll follow the auction and see where it takes me. Thanks again.


edit to add, missed it! Pity, not bad hammer price.
