My sister gave me this knife decades ago. I'd like to know its maker before I buy another japanese chef knife. But I can't read the box. I thought at the time she said she bought it from the knife maker himself, in the Bucks County, Pa area. Now I'm doubtful this was hand made in Pa. But I really don't know. Any help much appreciated.....

Looks like you got a Takamura.

Google translate app for your phone might help with the Japanese to English.

Thanks to you both. I guess I'll check with a local Japanese chef to see if Takamura is right. I tried the Google translate app...very cool, but as I hovered over the box, all I could get was "revolutionary powdered non-rust surgical sword" and "saliva co"...;) took me back to the early days of Altavista translation of texts
