It says "lemongrass knife"

Alternative reading "knife for people who ask too many questions"

Actually answer: 天秀作 tenshu, just a grocery store brand

And the English writing says....🧐
That's just the translation. They've helpfully provided it alongside the kanji unlike most of the common garbage brands you see around here. Clearly this is a superior product
 
No idea what the kanji says, but the brand is Kikuichi;
https://kikuichi.net/

"The Chrysanthemum symbol is still recognized in Japan for its connection to the royal family and you will still find it on all Kikuichi Cutlery. The continued use of this symbol both preserves our family history and assures every customer that Kikuichi Cutlery upholds the highest standards of quality."

Thanks for that. I thought that Chrysanthemum symbol looked familiar.
 
Can someone please translate this for me.

Hi. Thank you very much. Today I received a answer from Cleancut where the knife was originally bought. The told me it was produced by Yoshikane for them and it is written Kashima Sanjo. Now I don't know is it just the name of the line or can the kanji be read in a different way or is Mazaki a blade smith working at Yoshikane?

Think Mike was joking about it being made by Mazaki, it's a running consipiracy theory here at KKF that all knives comes from Mazaki's workshop. (Personally I think it's actually Shihan posing as Mazaki in his Japanese shop).

Whatever info you got from Cleancut is probably accurate.

Coincidentally Mazaki did apprentice at Yoshikane.

Just a running joke.

Kashima is Cleancut's house brand. The Sanjo refers to the area Yoshikane is from.

Coincidentally, so is Mazaki. And Toyama Watanabe 😂

Ahh yes, the infamous Shihan from New Mexico Prefecture.
