A small aikuchi-mounted tanto, its black-lacquer saya with silver kogai and covered at random with gold-lacquered plum blossoms. Carved in heavy relief, the silver fittings continue the floral imagery on the saya, creating a remarkable tribute to the maker’s love of nature. The blade, with silver habaki, is deeply carved with a yari-head and archaic characters. Length: 9.25” Edo/Meiji Period, Japan
