October, 2016 -
This tsuba is my entry for the 2016 NBSK Tobunkyo competition, where it was awarded a Gold prize.
Carved shinchu base with copper, shakudo, various shibuichi and gold inlays.
This piece was also featured in an exhibit of the entries for the competition, at the Museum of Iron in Sakaki, Japan from June-August 2016. I will include a copy of the exhibit catalog (in which this piece is published) in the sale of this tsuba.
I will post the price in October, but interested parties may contact me directly using the "Contact" page.
