Fuchi and Kashira
 
Fuchi; 43mm x 25mm x 13.5mm
Kashira; 40mm x 22mm x 13mm
 
A very fine fuchi and kashira of Satsuma style. Satsuma is a province of south Japan.
This big size and heavy duty feeling is typical character of Satsuma.




The samurais in Satsuma was one of the most brave solders in Edo period. They liked such a heavy duty mount for their swords.
