Tsuba bearing the mark of Yasuchika. Iron plate done to mimic wood for the surface texture. Interesting is the addition of a Ama Ryu that is done in soft metal on the surface. The In han is also done in the same metal which seems to be copper based. The tsuba also has a hammered rim, making it a bit appealing in manufacture. In fair condition, it could use a bit of careful cleaning.
