Commission of a display case for an ancient spear.
Wood and technique: Paulownia 桐, handcrafted hidden joints.
Features: sliding lid, hand carved crest on lid.
We had a special licence issued to hold onto this piece and while a licence is not needed to have and use a three times larger fish knife, this blade is considered a weapon. The price for sharpening the spear goes over ¥300,000. Since there is not intention of using it, I'll try to get the commission to just make it shine for a far more manageable price.
