    It looks like
    正次
    Masatsugu

    But I guess there were many of the same name? Here's a nice tsuba with a much nicer engraving -- definitely different craftsmen.

    When it comes to(no offense)lower quality tsuba, there often is not a lot of information available.

    No offence taken. I was surprised to find a sig ! I was at a sword show with Japanese dealers & one told me it was very old. back when the tsuba was a hand guard not so much an art piece. thx all

    Errrr .... Dan ..... not really. I can do some basic Japanese and can research a bit. But I think that most members on this forum (e.g., Bob C.) know WAY more than I.

    But thanks for the compliment.

    There are many plain iron solid tsuba signed "Kunihiro" which are a mass produced guard. Your p0hotos of your tsuba are too dark to make out any detail. If you post clearer detailed pictures, possibly we can give you more information. If so, post the tsuba the same as the one Guy posted as you presently have it on it's side.
