    Hello folks, quick question about this kanji in the picture, i think i have the last two characters: 上印
    however I'm not sure about the one on the left... i thought maybe it would be this one: 列... but doesn't look like it.... really hard for me to tell...
    thank you all!

    Gabe

    What is it in the first place? A box for something?

    vs. . A good example that the radical changes the meaning of the kanji completely. (incidentally, I didn't realize the typo at all, probably as same as the writer.)

    in this case it's called "Suita" or because it has small holes ("nest" /) that give it the name and the red lotus flower kind of marks are galled renge (蓮華)

    You are absolutely rigth Mike, "whetstone".
    Toritoribe, yes this kanji is used to grade mikawa nagura stones: Asano Stamps | TomoNagura.Com | Keith V. Johnson
    the strange part is the this is not a mikawa nagura stone. Maybe they just used the same grading system on this one ... very interesting!!
