A shibuichi, eight-lobed tsuba with beautifully executed gilt kiri mons strategically placed, front and back. (The kiri mon, or paulownia crest, one of the most honored Japanese crests, also relates to the legend of the mythical phoenix that perches only on the branches of the paulownia tree.) This tsuba is in very good condition, with 2 kogai bitsu (opening for the kogai and kozuka). Length: 3" Late Edo Period, Japan
