C165. Shoami Tsuba
T165. Iron tsuba with gold nunome. 6.8 x 6.8 x .45 cm at the raised rim. The nakago hitsu-ana measures .8 x 2.7 cm. The tsuba guy who consigned this piece to my site calls it Shoami. He knows more than I do so I agree. The rim is very nicely raised, there are prominent tekkotsu throughout, and patina & condition are excellent. $250.
