I'm sure that I am the only one who doesn't know this, but what is the significance of the 3 circles that appear on Carter, Kramer, and some other knives?
Interesting, because the car maker MitsuBISHI has three little diamonds as its logo. I mean, who would want to drive a MitsuBOSHI. That's why ToyoDA family name is ToyoTA on the cars, and Matsushita is Panasonic in the US.The three stars, not circles
Three stars are a symbol of victory. Three stars are also used to represent the Orion constellation. There are also link to three generals. however I ecpext Jason to chip in some info from Murray himself.
Mitsu = Three
Boshi = Star
Thank you Marko. I like the cut of your jib! :my2cents:Three circle makes a better story and a good story teller is a successful seller. If you don't believe it, then why are we talking about them here?
But since we are talking knives here (indirectly), for me personally, three circles would symbolize a good Heat Treatment where three major components are balanced out
- Good edge stability
- Good hardness
- Good wear resistance
It goes without saying that a steel suited best for kitchen cutlery would be selected.
