This tsuba came off of a katana long sword by Genzaemon Noshu ju Nobukuni, it still has remenants of the gold zogan inlay in the design of "Cho Cho" Butterflies, a popular Samurai symbol and motif for that of life being fleeting and like a dream, ephemeral as the proverbial butterfly. This tsuba sword guard is a wonderful example of the pierced open iron work that is of the Kamakura era style as it is thinner but was most likely made or crafted during the Edo period. Samurai sword guards are known as Tsuba. It originally came off of a tachi that was made in 1414 AD by Genzaemon noshu ju Nobukuni. It comes in its own custom made kiri wood box and please contact me if you are interested in acquiring this unique iron tsuba sword guard . Cheers, John
