Tsuka With Iron Higo School Fuchikashira Decorated with a Dragon - 15,5 cm
Tsuka with iron Higo School fuchikashira. On front side of fuchi beautiful and abstract dragon made with gold nunome zogan inlay, on back side of tsuka single cloud made with the same technique. This fuchi is simply amazing. The minimalistic approach shows strength and certainty, on the other hand abstract design of dragon shows artistic soul.
It is a shame that dragon on kashira is severely damaged so I can't say much about it.
Please also take a look at very nice shakudo menuki decorated with Daikokuten, one of the goods of good luck. We can clearly see all his attributes: mallet, bag of gold and ball of rice.
Low quality samegawa with no oyatsubu.
Good quality and tight tsukamaki.
