追加情報                              Additional Information This plate is very thin / elegant. This example would seem to be the work of the Edo period. This Tsuba is quite heavy despite being a thin plate.

The patina is very fine. Tsuba is suitable for a Katana.

歴史 History Toda Hikozaemon is one of the “Three Owari Masters of Genroku.” At the time, Toda had a great deal of influence on the artistic part of that period.

Huge Iron Katchu-shi Tsuba.  Nicely forged plate with a raised rim  as is the style of Katchu-shi. A tsuba of this size was likely made as a presentation piece.

Katchushi means armour-smith in Japanese. So, it is said that the definition of Katchushi-Tsuba is tsuba made by armuor-smiths or swordsmith craftsmen.

Those openwork looks similar to ears of the masks of Katchu (=armour).
