T203. Iron sukashi tsuba
T203. Iron sukashi tsuba. 6.5 x 6.7 x .45 cm. The nakago hitsu-ana is .8 x 2.6 cm. This tsuba has an interesting stippled finish. I suppose it could be corrossion but it is very uniform and there is no pitting or damage to the thin elements of the design. What’s more, the stippling doesn’t come off with boning, so maybe the tsuba was made this way. I’ll let you decide. $175.
