    The only words I can make out are "This thing is crazy sharp" and "Not for cutting sushi".
    Also "Made from a Toyota corolla leaf spring"........kidding. Maybe Zethlent or another member from Japan can help. Looks nice Magnus, yet to try a kami. NOS?

    Good looking kamisori there Mrmagnus. I cannot read a word of Japanese but I know there is apps/programs on the web that let's you scan and upload kanji then gives you a translation. Never tried it but it might be worth a shot.

    Good luck!

    Might be of help to show a closeup of the Kanji on the blade.

    Wish I could help! Close-ups could help. There is an Ebay seller who explains this on razors he sells. Might get a look if I knew what to look for.

    Man, I have been searching on the internet. SOMEWHERE there has to be a list of makers and their signatures.......
    Have not found it yet. Let me get OZ over here!

    A rough translation is "All that glistens is not gold". Don't know if that converts well into Swedish, Magnus, but I wish you well anyway.
    My service is good, fast and cheap. Select any two and discount the third.

    Not familiar with the kanji but I could move this thread to the 'Japan' forum if op wishes. Might get a hit there.
