    Default Another Kanji help needed thread

    This Kamisori is currently on its way to me. I was hoping someone would be kind enough to identify the maker.

    I assume the top group of 4 are "Trademark".

    Hi Jon.
    I also believe the group of 4 kanji are "Trademark" or something similar. They are unreadable.
    In the group of 3 I just can read the first 大(tai,dai or ō) which means big and the third 心(kokoro or shin) which means heart. So what we have so far is just big heart.
    Can you focus better on the second kanji please?

    Ok, so the second kanji seems to be 和 (wa), but following the 大 kanji the reading of the two kanji together is Yamato. So it should be Yamato Shin, but again a bigger pic might be helpful.

    Have a look at this one. It is a YamatoBashi Masamune I had.
    The first 2 kanji are 大和 (the same kanji that sould be on your blade) and the 3rd one is 橋.
    Do they look similar?

    This one might be a kenwa.
    劔和

    The first part of the first kanji can be written in different ways (traditional, simplified .. )

    In this pic the first kanji 検 is easily visible.
