Crane Sukashi Tsuba

A005

A sukashi crane after a famous Higo design.  Lacking the shiny black surface associated with Higo per se, the silvery and lightly textured surface is covered with granular tekotsu.   A very serious piece of metal.  This sort of iron is seen in good early Shoami work, and tends to be rust resistant, so it is difficult to judge its age from the build up in the web.  7.83 cm x 7.75 cm x 3.9 mm.                  $500
