    kanji

    Happy New Year to everyone.I have been buying a few old knives with a view to restoring them and some have kanji marks which I cannot identify.It seems to be a fairly common request so I thought it mightbe a good idea to start a library of known knife makers and their kanji marks.My thinking being that amongst all the members here we would have a fairly large range of different knives.?What do youthink?

    That is a great idea. I have a few recent antique mall scores I am having issues identifying.

    If you guys (or any member) wants to take pictures we can start a kanji library in the Knife Knowledge section. Maybe we can even talk one of our Japanese speakers/readers to post a typed out version of the kanji for search engine use too?

    I like the idea and will help however I can.

    Do you mean like this?

    Masamoto - 正本
    Sugimoto - 杉本
    Tojiro - 藤次郎

    If that's what you're referring to, I can help a bit.
