    No absolutely nothing about this piece. Happen to know what it says? Or even what style of knife this is used for? Any info ? I had difficulty categorizing this item. If it's in the wrong category apologize. : )

      The 3 KANJI below the image of the globe are read NIHON DO. NIHON means Japan or Japanese, and DO (pronounced "Doe") means "copper". Whether the handle is truly copper or really brass, we (wife and I) can't say ~ we are merely translating what is written on the blade. My wife says the KANJI above the image of the globe can be read in several different ways (which is common in Japanese and a source of many misinterpretations), so my wife feels uncomfortable possibly providing the wrong information. It's certain, though, that the KANJI is not the name of the knife maker.

      The English "R" within the circle next to the globe, as we all know, stands for "Registered Trademark", which is a relatively new concept in Japanese manufacturing law, so the knife, even though it looks "old", is in fact a relatively newer knife, dating, we think, anywhere from the 1960s and newer. The registered trademarked globe indicates to us that the knife was mass produced. The knife looks like a standard kitchen meat cleaver to us, albeit the brass or copper handle is not the typical wooden one found on most common meat cleavers. [;>)
