    That is okay, no one that studies Japanese swords would restrict their knowledge to just WW II.
    That being said, it would help if the photos were rotated before uploading here. It appears that it could be original. I would suggest that you wait for other opinions.

    It is a late cast tsuba that has been cleaned with all of the finish being removed. It is not a piece of any great value due to condition. $350.00 is way too much for this piece.

    Is It really Japanese??
    I'm not by any means an expert on tsuba's and fittings, but the detail and lines to this piece don't look right.

    As i said, this is not my area of knowledge, but i bought one with a similar theme years ago just because it appealed to me, and it is also worn, but has crisper lines to it.
    Perhaps it depends on the artisan/school that made it?

    It is Japanese. As I mentioned, it is cast making it a factory product and not the product of an artisan or school.

    Just for your information, the motif is "Shoki the Demon Queller" who is of Zhong Kui in the Chinese pantheon.

    thanks all and a big thanks to Bob ... Just been doing some more diging and have been told this below



    This type of tsuba was made for tourist trade in late Edo period (1880+) thru the early 1900's. They were cast and made of either copper or brass. This particular one shows no artistic ability, just quickly made to put on the market. These tsuba are called 'shiremono' tsuba.


    The above from some one who has been at it since 1945

    the more i have been reading the more i feel i am just digging my self in to a deeper hole

    i dont own a sword or any tsubs i just looked at one sold for $15k way out of my $$$ BUT WHAT AMAZING ART WORK
