Katana Dragon Tsuba

Koshirae - Japanese Sword Furniture

The guard on this sword depicts a dragon. The Koshirae (literally, furniture) on a japanese sword (or katana) were the dress mounts used for wearing a blade into public. It was common to have more than one koshirae for a family's sword - one for dress and another for battle.
