"This style of Ko-Shoami is very rare with so much of the original gold nunome inlay still intact. Many of the works we call Katchushi etc., are in fact Shoami but the nunome inlay is gone and we do not know what decoration it might have had. This piece dates to ca. 1500.

Attribution from the N.B.T.H.K. dated _______, 'SHOAMI'." (Haynes)
