@Owen  Got a picture? Are you sure it's Chinese? Japanese might be more likely! :) (I know, they share some of the same characters...)

@Owen Hi I got a regular Kaizen for Xmas and noticed that cool looking symbol on the base cup ring which I would think is the same as yours. It says 'Fuyu' meaning 'Winter' according to my wife who is a native of Tokyo.
But that's not 100%. Japanese characters can sometimes have other meanings. You could email kendama USA and ask?
Would be interesting to know their take on it.

Google translates "winter" into Japanese as 冬. Which looks different to me, but there could well be more than one symbol that means winter. Plus, I'd believe KenSan's wife over me. :)

@The Void the symbol you have for winter is correct and matches the symbol on my regular half split kaizen. The symbol on that Wyatt Bray pro mod means 'love' according to my wife.

I just received a kaizen 2.0 maple half split. I think I have a different character.
@KenSan care to help with the translation?
