    An old roommate gave me this but wasn't sure who made it, any help indentifying it would be appreciated greatly.

    Can anyone else see the pics?
    I faintly remember my roommate buying a bunch of used knives from Japan, store told him it was tabboo for chefs to pass down their knives as part of their soul is attached. Sounded like ******** to me, but what do I know.

    Could someone point me to another forum or database that has a long list of knife makers kanji?

    Well it didn't match any of the co kanji on the second thread, an couldn't identify the first or last kanji on the first thread... Any Japanese readers that could help translate? Are either of those threads active, would they be worth posting in?
