I think it say "Yamasho Betsue Atsurae," "Yamasho Special Made," and the knife is "Suisin Shironiko Yamasho Custom Made"

MCKEMAUS <> Image AWESOME! Thank you! I truly had a suspicion it was a Suisin, but all I had to reference was my Inox & the kanji is basically gone & very different anyhow. Plus, the saya looked just like a Suisin saya. Additionally, the owner of the knife had told me it was a cheapo Deba so I resigned to my suspicion being incorrect, but still - after inspecting it, I just couldn't believe it was a cheapo. Abused like a cheapo for sure, though...

THANKS AGAIN... AWESOME WORK!Image

FRANZ <> Yup... I was over at a buddy's for lunch & found it buried in his kitchen knife drawer!

Abrasive powder is definitely the first step, but just that... the first step. It is in the worst condition I have ever seen a knife. :cry: He explained he's had it for years, but someone in a kitchen swiped it to clean a big grouper. Apparently, the idiot ended up hacking at the spine thinking it was a cleaver. This Deba is so bad its tip is missing at least 2mm, it has chips up to 3mm deep hacked out of the cutting edge the full length from tip to heel, and as you see, it's rusted to disgrace.

I want it as a restoration project, but he won't let go of his pride to let me fix it. I won't let up... we'll see how long it takes for him to break. ;)

GARY <> Thank you, sir. It's really satisfying to rehab something. Seems I'm having more fun sharpening things then I am having fun cooking, as of late...
