An Iron Tsuba sloping four corners shape with Kozuka & Kougai holes

Flowing small leaves are Aoi (hollyhock leaves), and it is inlaid with gold as maples. This plant pattern was used as the family crest of the Tokugawa Shogunate family. In Samurai’s society, the top of the Samurai, who ruled the entire Japan, was called Shogun. Higo Tsuba has made progress in Kumamoto prefecture mainly. It was famous for iron Tsuba with openwork and gold inlay.


What is Tsuba?
Tsuba is the hand-guard of the Japanese sword. High-class Samurai wore his katana sword with its beautiful sword mountings such as Tsuba. The front design of Tsuba tends to be more decorative as this part was often seen by other Samurais when he was walking on the streets.
