Katana Tsuka With Sea Landscape and Pine Needles - Damaged
Katana tsuka with shakudo fuchikashira decorated with sea landscape. There are pine trees, drying fish nets and houses. With gold and copper inlay. Pine needle menuki made of shakudo with gold iroe.
This tsuka is dameged, it misses a bit of ito near kashira. Because of that kashira is loose. There are also two holes for mekugi drilled near each other. That is why value of this tsuka is based only on fittings:
Because tsukamaki is tight in my opinion a good craftsman could make sufficient repairs and this tsuka could be used on a sword again.
