Aloha, We recently did a deep clean of our kitchen, and I found this knife wedged between a tilt skillet and the wall. All in all, it's not I'm bad shape. I have a strong feeling it belonged to one of out chefs who passed away, but it has a serial number on the other side. If possible, I'd like to try to see if it's registered, but Im not sure what brand it is. http://i119.photobucket.com/albums/o139/MirkoSC/7b1e104b.jpg That's a picture of the etchings on the blade that isn't the serial number. From what I'm told it translates to Moribuden katakana, bit I can't find anything under that on google. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Much mahalos.
