Hilt of Japanese tanto

Japanese tanto which belonged to Admiral Sir William Henderson (active 1896). When received, this weapon was enclosed in a silk brocade bag covered entirely with embroidery. Attached to the bag is a loop of twisted silk cord, red in colour. An envelope found in the bag has the following written on it: 'This was given, when in Japan, to Captain W H Henderson, R.N in 1896 by a Japanese gentleman. The blade was made by a very celebrated maker of things of the sort. I believe his name is on the case.'
Kuniyoshi, Awataguchi
