A Pair of Tsuba

Recommended Posts

I stopped by the Allen Memorial Art Museum this morning and took these shots of a pair of tsuba (sword guards) currently on display.

There was a third, but it was in a different case and I couldn’t get a decent shot.

Notice the infill on the second one to fit it to a different sword's tang. We had a thread about gaps in guards lately...not a new thing.
