This Tsuba ismade from the same material of swords known as tamahagane and is from the Edo period depicting a great Un Ryu or Dragon among the clouds with side opening for a kogatana or kogai. It has a slightly raised seppadai where the seppa would go and gold zogan accents in the eyes of the dragon. This tsuba would be for a katana or large sized wakizashi short sword and is quite robust. Comes in a custom made kiri wood box with satin pillow. Please contact me if you are interested in viewing this Tsuba sword guard. Cheers, Hamaki
