    Sorry for not being more clear. Yes, your knife is a Mizuno. It's normal for Mizuno knives to not have Mizuno written on the blade. I was just adding some detail about what is written there. You can see that better here: http://www.mizunotanrenjo.jp/

    more kanji...
    there are few points I need to mantion:
    *most Kanji on blade is not maker's full name, mostly just maker's Family name or first name. I only type the Kanji show on the blade
    *most Kanji on blade include words like "made by", "specially made", " register by", "place made" etc. those Kanji is not in this pose list!
    *some knife makers have different Kanji on different Series knives
    KKF members who have more j-knives knowlage( Jon & sara from JKI, Mari from Korin, Maxim from JNS etc..) than me, You are more than welcome to correct any mistakes in the list!!
    I hope these will help....

    Great stuff guys, keep it coming.

    I'll prune and clean up this thread and move it to the Knowledge forum once it's done.

    Yep, nice one, Charles! If people can post makers not yet shown, photos of the the writing on their knives, or anything else they'd like the kanji for, that can help us flesh out the list.

    out of curiousity... Anyone recognize this maker? white paper one... second kanji is somewhat generic and I can't seem to figure out what the first kanji is supposed to be. I've had this one for awhile now but never figured out who made it.

    and just as a bit of an addition...
    Keijiro Doi -醉心 疾風 >> The kanji actually just reads suisin-shippo/hayate. Keijiro's symbol is the diamond emblem placed on the back. The reason I highlight this is because this line is no longer made by Keijiro. It is now produced by his son, but is still called 疾風. Only the diamond kanji on the back has been changed to be Itsuo's kanji instead of the diamond.

    I also have problem identify 2nd letter; however, according kkf member "Yamabushi" , It's Togiharu!!http://www.kitchenknifeforums.com/sh...-ID-this-knife

    Thanks... I think you correct in that the character is the same as that in Togiharu, however, actually another member has helped remind me of where I got this.

    I believe this was a purchase from Kamata in Tokyo, and seems to be a house brand. It would explain why Yamabushi saw it in Kappabashi.

    http://kap-kam.com/

    also, while I am here, a couple of examples of the kanjis on knives members can use for ref:

    Masamoto Sohonten (left) vs Tsukiji Masamoto (right)



    Aritsugu Kyoto (left) vs Aritsugu Tsukiji (right) - actually think you can't easily tell these apart. Whited out part covering an engraving I had added so as not to distract.



    Ichimonji Chuki



    more to follow...

    Yes, you are 100% correct. I saw the knife in Kamata.

    Yes kamata is where I bought mine as well (from thread cited previously http://www.kitchenknifeforums.com/sh...D-this-knife)- the store manager told me the name but I can't recall exactly what he said about it. It's turned out to be a great knife
