Kanji, especially if it is cheaper for you to do so. Most people would like their Japanese-style knives to look Japanese.

Maybe an "R" with the wedge knife blade component next to, or under the "R". This would save Mark from sending them to Lamson as another step on the process.


I like this Idea. Like Konosuke HD. Have the Kanji, then MR (Mark Richmond) below or RK (Richmond Knives).

Yeah, I think that's the best of both worlds.....Kanji and an "MR" or "Richmond" or some such.

Represents that it's a Japanese made knife, with Richmond roots.

How about kanji and a 'chop' similar to Al Mar Knives?

Location: USA... mostly.
I truly respect the point Mckemaus makes, and agree in that your logo is very important as you have worked hard to build your brand. On the other hand, the respect I have for the actual blacksmith is of the utmost.

All things considered, as you are trying to cut costs, I think Kanji w/an addition of an "RK" or "Richmond" engraving would be nice. Like how the "INOX" is engraved below the Tadatsuna Kanji.

I think makers Kanji on one side. Richmond Logo on the other.


Agreed.
