General

Additional Information

The judgment on the authentic as expressed in the description above was confirmed by “Nippon Bijutsu Tōken Hozon Kyokai” (NBTHK) issuing a Tsuba “Koshu Tokubetsu Kicho” (blue papers) certifigate.

Provided on 昭和三十六年九月二十四日. Shōwa ju san roku nen ku gatsu ni ju yon hi, 24th September 1961.

The two designs are reproduced to startling effect. Both the Kuyō (nine stars) and Cherry blossom Mon were used by the Hosokawa Daimyō under whose patronage Matashichi worked.

The iron surface bears a good patina of age, the iron texture is excellent and gives you a powerful feeling.

History

The technique on this Tsuba is often used by Ko-Tosho (old swordsmith) and Ko-Katchushi (old armor maker).
