Ebony Tanto Koshirae
An ebony koshirae, with tsunagi, for a small tanto depicting some sort of Japanese myth and a furry tailed turtle. Unfortunately, I have no idea about the significance of the imagery. The tsuba is an integral part of the saya. Named Chichuto on the back. (Chi: knowledge, chu: devotion, to: sword). Slight scratching as shown. There is a small crack in the saya as shown. It is not separating. Ideal for mounting a small tanto, or collecting for itself.
