  • Tsuba Hyotan Sukashi - T064

    This made in Japan Tsuba features a calabash.
    The first mention of Hyotan (gourds or calabash) in the Japanese literature was in the Nihongi, one of the most ancient texts. The Hyotan, with its womb-like nature and the fact that it contain seeds, often represents the female aspect of things, it also represent fertility and luck.
    It was very rarely used a crest because it was often used to carry Sake (alcohol), however, Hideyoshi Toyotomi, one of the most important historical figure of the Sengoku period took it as one of his signifying crests, adding one gourd to his design after each victory. It lead him to be called "the lord of the golden water gourds", which could be interpreted as "The lord of many lucky outcomes" in some ways. From Hideyoshi, the gourd became the symbol of victory in the Samurai culture.
