So, they had a hard time doing Richmond in Kanji but they can do Mark in Kanji and it's nice. Since most of my customers can't read it I think it would look good aesthetically on the knife.
Check it out.

I still think something is lost in your branding by using solely Kanji. Not to mention, no offense, it's not a Mark Laser
... it's a Richmond Laser.
Can't they do RK
like Tadatsuna does INOX
... if that even interests you?

I agree with Melampus. Could they do an "RK" in English capital letters, not Kanji symbols? I'm visualizing a Japanese stylistic take on RK, but recognizable by those who are not Kanji literate. I guess the question is would they do that, or is that not appropriate for hand engraving from the Japanese perspective?
I think it would look REALLY cool!

Im with Melampus on this. Other possibilities are an RK similar to the HD on konosuke. Or a unique R stamp in the same style as the Aritsugu A-type.

I'm with Melampus. You are building a brand name that will be aimed at Westerners. Extrapolating your recent success, who knows where you will be in 20 years? Kanji is fun, but generate and maintain a recognizable logo. Shun did a good job of integrating the two in their logo,, but it's no Apple or McDonalds. You might even want to hire an expert to establish the perfect brand signature.

Mark in kanji with Richmond below it would be perfect.
Something similar to this maybe...........

I like Jeff's idea, but I think I prefer keeping it more western. Just my .02 cents for whatever that's worth.

+1 For Jeff's idea. If it's a Japanese made knife designed by an American ; what would be more perfect?
