Hello all, I recently received an Edo period shakuhachi with the above markings on it. It looks to me like a very crude hanko. Can anyone tell me what it means?

ゲ which is a katagana (one of the two Japanese syllable alphabets) and pronounced "ge".
That is how it looks to me.

It reads "Take 竹" (kanji)chinese charactor.
Left half is a half of 竹(Take:bamboo), and the right is a mark of the similer(〃).
So that is 竹.
But it's not a hanko. It's a curved one.(probably carved by a knife)
Ordinary shakuhachi makers use yakiinn(the heated iron with letter).
By the way this old shakuhachi is very interesting for me.
I'm curious to listen to that tone.

Wow! I didn't know you could do repeat signs for a part of a kanji. Learning something new every day!
Thanks, Kishi! Smile
