T156. Iron Sukashi Tsuba. Yagyu?
T156. Iron Sukashi Tsuba. 7.9 x 7.9 x .4 cm. I think the design is sedge hats. I’ve included a picture of a tracing of a page from the Yagyu Design Book, where this design is included. I wouldn’t call this tsuba early Yagyu but it definitely is a Yagyu design, most likely made later in the Edo period. The iron is grainy and there are subtle tekkotsu on the rim. Very nice. $350.
