So I went to EE and bought a 270mm Tanaka suminagashi Yanagiba. I decided to pick up the cheaper Tanaka Kasumi Yanagiba online by Shigeki Tanaka and happened to see the knife I just picked up at EE for a lower price. When I tried to price match, EE told me that the one I bought was from the father (who has since passed away) and is of superior quality, and therefore more expensive. Upon doing some research, I have noticed that the Kanji on my knife is different than that currently circulating around the internet. My knife has three kanji characters and the newer knives have four, although the bottom two kanji all match up. Does anyone know anything about this, or can read kanji? I don't know how to post pics from Tapatalk, but the kanji from each knife can be found at JWW (Japanese Woodworker) and the other from EE (Epicurean Edge).
