Den Shimada. (島田).
80pt score is a solid Tokubetsu Hozon NBTHK equivalent.
Those with an 81 or above score are considered candidates for Yushu, if sent to Japan.
Given that it is mumei, it must be a very nice example.

Photos of the blade please? I have a sudden interest in Shimada den stuff!

Congratulations, 80 is a very very good result. Did you receive your origami recently? I'm still waiting, the agent has gone radio silent since October.

Shimada stuff isn't considered first grade, especially as much of it was made during the heavy production period of the 1500s.
Still, I like a lot of their O-tantos as being very underrated for the quality you get for the price.
A fair number are signed, so 80pts for an unsigned one is a curious thing. I look forward to the pictures.

Kirill will also be interested, as few of our blades received that many points.
Anyone can be tough for a season,
but it takes a special kind of human to rise to life's challenges for a lifetime.

The work sheet would be helpful, please include. Peace.
