Description

This tsuba must be categorized as Tosho-Tsuba. Tosho-Tsuba means sword guard made by swordsmith, not by tsuba craftsman.
We estimate this tsub was made at the early part of the Edo period or much ealier time from the atmosphere.
It is slightly rusty.
The color of the iron plate is very tasteful as it is forged and tempered very well.
