A very nice, solid feeling bronze yatate. The walls of the handle and ink basin are thick making this yatate fairly heavy for it's size.

There is an overlapping lip on the sumitsubo (ink basin) lid. This overlap goes from zero overlap on the hinge side to a full 8.5mm on the opposite side. The opposite end on the handle has a small hole drilled for a string.

The fourth photo from the bottom shows some slight repair work that was done to the ink basin deck on the hinge side of the yatate at some point in the past. The repair work appears to be solid and does not affect the function of the ink basin lid in any way.

Notice how the yatate lid overlaps the ink basin and comes down further toward the opening side.
