    very nice. That ferrule is awesome!

    On the blade, it says it was made by 忠雄 (I believe it's pronounced as "Tadao). I couldn't find the maker of this company or craftsman, but I saw couple of knives with the same engraving, and all of them were SK steels (the carbon ones).

    Now, not that it's as helpful, but if you need French or Portuguese kanji translated, I'm your guy

    Take a look around at:

    Yup, it's Tadao for sure. I have one of their deba. Not certain about the steel but sharpens up right nice.

    Ahh, the others beat me to the answer! Anyway, I still like to figure these out and I've got the same:

    登録 (the first smaller pair) = registered
    忠雄 = Tadao/Tadawo
    作 = made

    Therefore, it's a registered knife made by Tadao/Tadawo. ... Oh, and I agree. Nice marble ferrule on that hand which, with the plainer ho wood, makes for one attractive knife. Nice one - replace (burl up) the handle!

    Thanks for all the help, is it unusual to have what seems to be a fairly high end knife, be made by this seemingly unknown maker?
