serial  number

The Japanese Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry

Each knife that bears this seal has a registered serial number with the Japanese Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry. It certifies that only true masters were involved in the making of the knife. It is an expensive and complicated process to guarantee that the customer receives a traditional Japanese knife direct from the hands of a master. The use of this registration mark helps keep the integrity of the craftsmen's tradition alive. We are very proud to sell knives that bear this mark.
