M169. Iron sukashi tsuba
M169. Iron sukashi tsuba. 7.3 x 7.4 x .33 cm. This tsuba is signed but I haven’t been able to read the signature. I really like this one. Dense plate with great soft patina and tiny specks of iron standing proud of the surface all over. The tsuba sparkles, which I’ve been told is a sign that it was made of sa-tetsu (sand iron). Condition is perfect. $375.
