Shoki Threatening An Oni (Meiji Period)

BY LEAVE A COMMENT

A bit too ‘busy’ for me but i’m sure some folks will go crazy about it 🙂

I do think it’s a pretty neat concept that on the backside of the tsuba you’re actually looking behind Shoki’s back. At least that’s what i think because of the blade i’m seeing on top..

I rather prefer this Shoki tsuba or this Shoki fuchi & kashira from a while ago.
