    Nice explanation, kanji always looks cool. Thinking if some egyptian hyerogliphs would be equally cool So we would have french kitchen knives made from swedish steel in japanese blacksmiths with some egyptian hyeros and distributed through US to anywhere in the world. Globalization in its purest form.

    By the way, can someone read that beautiful kanji? From the above explanation I think the last picture reads 青一 or "blue 1". Thanks

    The 'kanji' on our knives

    合羽橋 - Kappa bashi
    Just an area in Tokyo I believe similar to doguyasuji in osaka.

    Other part might just be the shops name
    かま.... Ka ma
    Can't read the last hiragana maybe に
    ni?

    Any insight will be appreciated.

    Thanks
