T266. Iron Sukashi Tsuba with Evidence of Folding
T266. Iron sukashi tsuba. 7.3 x 7.5 x .5 cm. The nakago hitsu-ana is .8 x 2.65 cm. Even without the visible fold lines on the rim, this would be a fine tsuba. But, given the difficulty involved in leaving evidence of folding while leaving no defects in the plate, this one is special. I like it a lot. $350.
