C272. Nishigaki Tsuba, Fuji in Yamagane
C272. Yamagane tsuba of Mt. Fuji. 6.8 x 7 x .3 cm. The nakago hitsu-ana is .7 x 2.8 cm. This is an etched surface and the work is very similar to pieces that have been attributed to one or another generation of Kanshiro Nishigaki. The 2 holes next to the nakago ana (saya dome ana) are put through at an angle, something else I've seen on Higo work. There are more than a few dents and sword cuts on the rim; wonder what the story behind them is. Otherwise condition is excellent; nice piece. $325.
