FK-101 Nagamine Eiho Fuchi Kashira

Excellent shakudo nanako fuchi kashira by Nagamine Eiho

Nagamine worked in the mid-Edo period and was famous for his shakudo nanako work with detailed takabori in the Kyoto Goto tradition. This fuchi kashira depicts a warrior waiting underneath the pine tree and if I recall correctly is a story from the Heikei Monogatari. Please note high takabori, use of iroe, and excellent nanako work. A Kyoto kinkoshi, Nagamine was also known as Jisaburo and is a Jokko rated smith in the Kinko Meikan.
