This is one of the metal fittings which are attached to the two ends of the hilt of the sword for reinforcement and decoration as well. It is a small piece, but it shows an elegant Maki-e design of Gion-mamori crests in gold and silver with elaborate workmanship. This design of the Gion-mamori crest was used by the 3rd lord, Tachibana Akitora.
