Q236. Iron Tsuba with Extensive Fine Brass Inlay
Q236. Iron with brass, Heianjo Zogan maybe. 7.8 x 8.4 x .35 cm. The nakago hitsu-ana is .8 x 2.7 cm. The Manji is an ancient Budhist symbol; it has nothing to do with Germany & WWII. There is some loss of brass but this may be a bit older than the usual brass zogan tsuba and is to be expected. There are subtle tekkotsu on the rim. $295.
