Does anyone have any idea who this smith Tosa ju Sadahiro is? I can't find any information on him at all.

Thanks,

Peter

I believe the smith might be Kita Sadahiro.

According to the website Kita Sadahiro was born in 1913, your blade is dated 1990.
If he was still making swords at age 77 it is a wonder he did not note it on the tang. Have limited sources for Gendai smiths at hand, i am sure Paul can help us figure out who he is.
