Identify this knife!

Guy at work has this in his bag, it was given to him a few years ago by a retiring japanese cook that no longer had a use for it. Anyone have any idea what this thing is?

The second picture said it is made of Yasuki white steel, Hitachi shirogami carbon steel.

From the first character of last picture, I think it is made in Tosa. I think the last two character just said manufactured. i can't quite make out the second and third characters. Unfortunately, the picture is turned sideway and flipped... and I am nowhere near a computer. :(. Will update if I figure out what it say.

Hope this helps :)
