Description
Japanese Menukis, Pair, Gold. The Menuki (目貫) are ornaments on the tsuka to fit into the palm for grip and were originally meant to distract the eyes from the mekugi (peg). Menuki is a kind of metal fitting of the Japanese sword, which was initially put into the hole of the handle. It covers Mekugi (nail) so that the blade of a sword will be fixed. Originally, Menuki was used to hold Mekugi, but they became separated over time. Photography by Mitchell D. Cohen Photography
