« Part 3: Saw fixing weekend Part 4 of Japanese Tools series no next part

I have this Chouna, it was all black/brown and after about a day in citric acid and a lot of scrubbing every hour, I can now see the steel in some places, It also revealed a stamp and some faint etching that became stronger with time.

I have also had the blades from my two Nagadai-ganna in citric acid to remove ages of rust.
Anyone know anything about this stamp?

The other one still in the acid…

This one has stamps on the front and the back, both have stamps on the laminated chip breaker and one of them has a stamp on the nagadai, half worn of by use…

hi, to the blade, i ask my sister in law, she is japanese:

“It is written that ‘The registered trademark’ and name’ teishin or sadanobu’. The big letter is the name of the person. It can be also some company use this name as their trademark. “
