Kinai tsuba

Hi all,

 

I was just cleaning a training sword of mine and took the opportunity to take a few snaps of the tsuba I've been swinging around for about 10 years or so. I thought Dick might appreciate some more metalwork.

 

It's made by the Kinai school, circa 1800. Pierced and carved iron, this being the speciality of this group. There are traces of fine gold wire decoration ( nunome zogan ) which was probably applied sometime in the late 19th cent. It's mounted on a katana.

 

oh!, and this is just " a lookin' at picture" :(

 

Ford :)

Yup!, the holes were obviously drilled to lighten it and thus prepare it for Formula ! :)

 

no, you can stay. It would be shellfish ;) of me to expect you to leave for sorry effort. :D

hi Robert,

 

thanks for that, I will post some images of a recent piece shortly. To be honest I've been saving pics of new work for my web-site, which has yet to make it on-line.

 

cheers, Ford
