T108. Papered Sukashi Tsuba
T108. Iron sukashi of birds, waves, pine, and mountain. Unsigned with NBTHK Hozon paper, dated 2009, to “Shoami”. 8 x 8.1 cm, thick plate. When I first saw this tsuba I thought it a bit crude; the longer I have it the more impressed I am with the design. Condition is very good and with a bit of fussing it could be great. This tsuba comes with a box. $450.
