K273. Iron Sukashi Tsuba with Hatchet
K273. Another large iron sukashi tsuba, this time with a hatchet. 8.7 x 8.8 x .3 cm. The nakago hitsu-ana is .9 x 3 cm. This, like the other tsuba I have been listing the last few days, came out of the box of 108 found at the back of a kura (storehouse) in Japan. Fine tekkotsu on the rim. $160.
