Appraisal Quiz #778

Previous answer is
  Tanba kami Yoshimichi (Osaka Tanba Shodai first generation)

Features: Tanba-no-kami Yoshimichi allowed the carving of a chrysanthemum pattern on the tang in Kyoto, but in Osaka, they continued without the chrysanthemum pattern until the end of the Bakumatsu period. In my opinion, Osaka Tanba Shodai improved significantly in creating this slat pattern from the second generation onwards.
