I asked the owner and he said it was like "sa-burn" or something like that...he wasn't exactly sure.

dare say you'll need better pics if anyone is going to have any chance. the only thing i can kind of see is the top one but it just looks like '1/2'

Gin 3 is a Hitachi stainless that is used in many very good knives in a wide range of pricepoints (from Hiromoto's G3 series to the Tadatsuna inox series).

I think it is pronounce Sabun.
It is a name so it may be pronounced other way.
I am not familiar with this brand name.
