Iiyama-san
Just to clarify these are plates (ita) which are inset into the handle core in place of say a panel of same or nishiki, correct? and something different from Tsutsugane, yes?

SAMEGAWA used instead.
TSUKAMAE put on the metal (gold, silver, SYAKUDO, SUAKA, SHIBUICHI, iron, etc.) are made​​.
Many TSUKAITA is a carved dragon and patterns.
Under KASHIRA (TOME-SHITA) is located to the lower.

TSUTSUGANE (TSUKA-TSUTSUGANE, TSUKA-DOHGAME) is a different one.

Hello Iiyama-san,

Jeff Ellis on the SFI forum has suggested this:

"There was a trend that involved not using samegawa for a while, I'm assuming these were property of a high ranking samurai or someone who was not using their sword. "

Would this be the case?
-Again thank you-

Hello Huckdat-san,

In my opinion.
In KAIBU-KOSHIRAE, without much SAMEGAWA.
They work where they are from the sea.

I think like this.
SAMEGAWA was always used as SAMURAI with a high status.

A life will be lost if TSUKA breaks at the time of a battle.
SAMEGAWA is weak in water.
How to strengthen TSUKA was considered.
TSUKA is intended to protect life.

Thank you.

KENSEN
