The triple rope rim is a frequent motif.  8.08 cm x 8 x 5.5 mm.  Good color and condition. Circa. 1750. Note the impact damage at 4:30 in the right hand picture, likely from a war hammer, and the tsuba survived this impact.  Ref. Haynes Catalog 10, #233 & #234.    There is an example of Sendai Myochin using this design, Haynes 4, 1178, but the seppadai is completely different.    $500
