Q101. Daisho Jakushi Tsuba
Q101. Daisho iron tsuba. The dai is 7.3 x 7.4 x .42 cm. Its nakago hitsu-ana is.9 x 2.8 cm. The sho is 6.7 x 7 x 3.3 cm. Its nakago hitsu-ana is .7 x 2.5 cm. Both tsuba are signed Jakushi; both show dragons you wouldn’t want to meet in a dark alley. The sho has a Kicho paper from the NBTHK, dated 1970. Condition is excellent and, while these may not have been made as a daisho, they are quite similar and work well as such. $695.
