M158. Iron and brass tsuba
M158. Iron and brass tsuba. 7.7 x 7.8 x .5 cm. The person I bought this from describes the work as “Higo style hotsure zogan.” Hotsure means to boil, I believe. Aggressive hammer work on a dense plate in excellent condition. None of the brass appears to be missing (how would you know?). Comes with a box. $175.
