    Anybody read Kanji?

    I picked up this cool Deba (looks almost symmetrical) at a funshow the other day. Can anyone decipher the writing and tell me who made it?
    Advice on fixing the knicks would also be welcome.
    Thanks in advance.

    I'm not 100% sure, but I think this is very old Deba (metal ferrule was more common in older times in Japan) from KIKUHIDE.
