    Logo Placement Left or Right Side Your Thoughts

    It is customary for US makers to place the maker's mark on the left side of the knife.

    How big of a deal would it be if one places it on the right side, akin to Japanese makers?

    The reason being, I like it there better on the right side (for a right-hand use), but I want to make another point here.

    I am making knives that are copies of Japanese knives in some way, handles copies of a Japanese wa, and sheaths are copies of a Japanese saya. It's a gyuto, with a wa handle and a saya, thought made in the US from Western steels.

    Wouldn't be appropriate to put a maker's mark on the right on knives that are derived from Japanese knives (for right hand use), and on the left for knives derived from European knives?

    Does make sense?

    Will puts his on the right side. To me, it makes no difference.

    All right then, right side it is with exception of a few that I marked on a left size.

    To me it makes a difference. When I hang my knives up on a mag, I place the left side against the magnet so the edge faces right. I like to see the kanji or makers mark when I hang up my blades.

    Right side, thereby making the few knives already marked on the left rare and unique . . .

    Anyone else notice a correlation between maker's mark placement and what side of the road residents of a country drive on?

    I marked 4 knives on the left and 2 knives on the right side. 225mm is on the left side.
