T142. Iron sukashi tsuba, Akasaka School
T142. Iron sukashi tsuba. 6.8 x 7.1 x .5 cm. The nakago hitsu-ana measures .8 x 2.7 cm. This is Akasaka school and obviously by the same shop as H152 in the Holbrook tsuba elsewhere on my site. About that tsuba Skip says, “Akasaka III, Broom, pine, moon. Moment of enlightenment for Jittoku.” Subtle tekkotsu on the rim; condition is fine. Was $190, now $150.
