Katana Tsuka With Iron Fuchikashira - Crows Flying in the Morning Light - Ake-Garasu
Katana tsuka with iron fuchikashira and shakudo menuki. Fuchikashira decorated with Ake-Garasu theme. Literal translation of this phrase would be "dawn crow", however it refers to crows/ravens flying in the morning light. Fuchikashira made of iron with shakudo and solid gold inlay. There is also a shakudo ring on the bottom and top of fuchi and on the bottom oh kashira.
Dragon menuki made of shakudo with gold inlay.
Tsuka ito is in poor condition and kashira is a bit loose. It was reinforced with lacquer so ito itself is not loose.
Good quality full wrap samegawa.
