Tsukamaki examples


Wrapped in indigo Japanese silk tsuka-ito. Fuchi, kashira and tsuba are original koto pieces. The menuki are modern reproductions that I enhanced with gold leaf and patina solutions. The same (ray skin) is new. The seppa are new (treated to a matching patina). The saya is original with the lacquer restored in a few places and the mouth of the saya adapted to have a more secure grip on the sword. The entire saya has been re-polished by hand using cotton cloths. New Sageo and shitodome on the kurikata. Image >
