Massive Iron tsuba papered to the Myochin school per the NBTHK.  The weight and thickness of this tsuba gives it truly dominating feel.

I have been presented with some evidence which makes me wonder as to the accuracy of the attribution. The similarities are striking. The photo and description below are from the Haynes catalogs exhibiting an almost identical tsuba from the rarely seen Jusai.
