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!

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

Fascinating. A knife made out of rope. I had no idea they could do that.
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.)

this is the stamp on the back of a sharpening stone, a wet stone





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)
