    I don't know if this is the place to post this but I need some help identifying the brand of the deba. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks Colin

    That's odd. Is it just the photo, or are those characters in relief?

    Anyway...

    In a month or two I can check, but I think I have a deba like this. It was made in Shikoku. A lot of minor brands are there, in the old district northeast of Koji. They sell a lot through flea markets and the like, which is a big trade in Japanese tools for household use.

    Where did you get it?
