Higo Hayashi Tsuba
A classic Higo Hayashi tsuba. A very heavy and dense tsuba. Great condition and color. What shows up as texture in the pictures, is abundant granular tekotsu. This designed can be found with some variation in Hayashi, Kamiyoshi, and Hirata. Of course the Rakuju examples have heavy nunome Buddha curl designs. 8.52 cm x 7.79 cm x 6 mm. (for those metrically challenged, like myself, that is 3.35" x 3.07" x .24").
