K129. 1st Class Choshu Kiyohisa Ho Bird Tsuba
K129. Iron sukashi tsuba signed Choshu Hagi Ju Kiyohisa Saku. 6.9 x 7.1 x .5 cm. The nakago hitsu-ana is.7 x 2.4 cm. Good Choshu tsuba often have a distinct blue cast to the iron; this one does. I like this tsuba a lot; the quality of carving is as crisp, as good as any I’ve ever had. Condition is excellent, pristine. $450.
