C232. Possibly Owari Sukashi Tsuba
C232. Iron sukashi tsuba. 6.7 x 7 x .45 cm. The nakago hitsu-ana is .9 x 2.6 cm (note: the nakago hitsu-ana has been notched to accept a spring clip for mounting to Gunto). The collector who has consigned this tsuba to my site thinks it might be Owari; I, of course, don’t know. There are subtle tekkotsu on the rim and the patina is very nice. $165.
