I submitted a tanto for shinsa to the NTHK in Tampa last year and have not gotten around to translating the papers yet. I’m slow at that. The worksheet gave it 80 points. I was just curious if anyone here sees anything on the papers that would account for the 80 points.

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.

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.

:popcorn:

 

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.

Sorry for the delay and for the picture quality. I’m using a cell phone. I’ll send better photos later and dig out the worksheet.
