The detailed Maru Gata style brass tsuba depicts the pattern of the “Umi,” or ocean. One side of the tsuba shows a calm ocean with birds in the sky, while the other side of the tsuba shows how dangerous oceans can be with aggressive tidal waves pounding away. Such is the way of the Samurai. In times of peace they are calm and collected, but when war erupts, they are fierce and formidable. The wood handle is real ray skin wrapped in traditional black cotton cord. It also features brass Fuchi and Kashira.
