It is a kao Pablo. A kind of seal used by artists as a personal mark. Like a Chinese chop. They are hard to track when you have no art name (go) to assist with the search. John

Thanks Stuart, I understand it will be hard to trace this artist.

Kind regards,
Pablo

Good morning Pablo,

Robert Haynes' masterly 3 volume "The Index of Japanese Sword Fittings and Associated Artists
by Robert Haynes (2001) and 2001 to 2010-11 Corrigenda Et Addenda" is an invaluable source for further study.
