This Tsuba is part of a high end series (from TM018 to TM029) and is made of a traditional Tetsuji Iron, blackened with special iron lacquer. The process is optimized to obtain a result that reproduces ancient Tsuba as they were when new. To limit the cost, the cut is mechanical, but hand-guided. The iron black lacquer is done by a specialist, similarly to how it is done on other swords parts or Yoroi (armors).
