MF-315 Shakudo Wave and Birds Kozuka
Nice Shakudo Kozuka with a Well-cut Design of Birds and Waves.
The waves are carved strongly with lots of gold dots inlayed for the wave spray. The 3 birds show life in flight, and have a little wear on their bodies. The kozuka is very thick and heavy showing the high level of the shakudo used. This kozuka seems to have the feeling of being made by the Omori or Sonobe School. The deep dark shakudo is a good sign that this kozuka is from a main school.
