"Worked in the style and made copies of Nobuiye school tsuba. Large rounded square iron plate tsuba with raised rim, the plate carved with the classic tortoise shell pattern found on many Nobuiye tsuba. The plate surface well worked and showing the forging patterns that are famous in Nobuiye tsuba. The hitsu-ana are both kozuka shaped, one a little larger than the other.
