A small sculpted tsuba by Kaneshige. 7.11 cm x 6.93 cm x 3.5 mm. Haynes lists several smiths who signed this way, I'll let you be the judge of which attribution that you choose. Hoan (late 17th - early 18th cent); Shoami (1775); Nara (1700); and a couple noted without location. My preference would be Hoan from the quality of the plate, and the fact that the Shoami smith was from Aizu.
