I was never a big fan of the tsuba either but I've warmed up to it. Think it was the gold edge and the high level of detail that won me over. Another weird thing is that cos I'm colour blind I cant quite work out what the colour is. Now I know its brown but I really cant say for sure lol

this is at the top of my shopping list, has been since i got the kat.
and its not 'brown', :tut:

its more of a golden bronze with a hint of autumn dusk over fields of corn in early may. :razz:


thanks for posting the pics, haven't had a chance to check one out properly before.
:D :D
