Boxwood Dragon Tanto

Recommended Posts

Hi,

Thought everyone would enjoy this Meiji period boxwood tanto. The piece is inlaid with horn, ivory and mother of pearl. The Dragons are in high relief, up to a half inch where the kurikata would be located. The end of the tsuka is a phoenix. The blade is signed, sixteenth century. The habaki seems to be Mount Fuji. Sorry about the glare but I had to use a flash.
