Description

An authentic Japanese Kozuko or Kadzuka Knife.  The handle is inlaid, high relief, mixed metal of leaves and flowers with a decorated heart shaped hole at the end.  The delicate inlays are done with copper, silver & gold.  We believe this is from the Edo period (1603 – 1868).  Have been told the inscription on the blade would be a poem, but we do not know what it says.
