Item #: BQ2117 -- Fantastic Higo Iron Katana Tsuba, Late Edo Period, ca. 1800 -- $1500.00

The beautifully hammered iron plate has ishimi (stone) texture, is well tempered and tapers slightly toward the edge. The sukashi is very tasteful with histu ana in the form of kabuto frontally viewed in silhouette along with a heart shaped (boars eye) and udanuki ana (sword cord openings). This is a wonderful work in every way that requires more study and should paper very well. 7.9 cm. round.
