Originally, metal fittings made as pair of fuchi-gashira.
However, kashiras have been taken apart, so that they remain as hanare-buchi, fushis only. They can be used for koshirae making, using tsuno for kashira. They can be appreciated as they are.

KUWAHARA Yôjirô wrote a essay titled On fuchigashira, a pair and apart "縁頭の取り合せ物と離れ物" in Shôwa 14(1939). He mentioned that there were cases just making fuchi only, using tsuno for kashira in order to concentrate the expence. So that fuchi become elaborate and beautiful work. He pointed that some separated items "離れ物" should be valued highly.
