Tsukamaki examples


Wrapped in black Japanese silk tsuka-ito. The fuchi, kashira, menuki and tsuba are original koto pieces. The same (ray skin) is new. The seppa are new hand-made to match the tsuba (treated to a matching patina). The saya is original repaired and freshly lacquered in red/brown with a technique that captures flakes of gold leaf deep within the urushi. The kurikata and koiguchi (scabbard mouth) are newly carved and polished from horn. New Sageo and shitodome on the kurikata. Image >
