Occassionally I have the opportunity to put work on a nice daisho (matched set).   I recently completed this daisho tsuka & saya project.  On it I used 4 mm gold silk ito (cord) on the tsuka (handles), and gold/black urushi (lacquer) base topped by 4 orange tinted transparent layers of cashew (lacquer).

Although I had to cut new saya for both the katana and the wakizashi, the tsuka, seppa, fuchi/kashira, menuki and tsuba are all original.

The katana is a Koto Bizen blade in good polish with a nice sori and fumbari.

The wakizashi is a Shinto Seki blade in good polish with a classic sanbonsugi hamon.

And, as always, I'm curious what you think...
