    Nice. Most navy cutlery had anchor & cherry blossom stamped

    I can see no apparent connection with the navy in these items. Seki Hamono KK (Seki Blades Co.) was a major commercial brand, but nothing about the fork is military. The Kanji in the circle means "Trial" and a typical way to mark prototypes being evaluated. Just run-of-the-mill items from someone's kitchen is getting a dubious "show and tell".

    So all this time I thought the blue enamel bowls were navy ?

    The father of the owner of the dishes participated in the Manchurian strategic offensive operation of 1945, from which he brought them.
    As for the stamp on the fork - are there any other examples of such stamps?

    Woops, I mistook it to be white on both sides. A blue bottom does change things, but the EM bowls normally should have a standard navy anchor, so the marking still bugs me. I have, however, seen such a marked piece being excavated from a pond where a navy airfield used to be, so it could be navy related, but I cannot place it without research. Officer bowls were in ceramic with the anchor and cherry blossom insignia. Fork is still devoid of any military traces.

    I found another doing a google image search, but the screen opened to a "potential security risk" warning so I did not go further.

    And one from Stewarts Military Antiques

    Original era manufacture. 6.5 inch diameter stamped steel food bowl with a blue/white enameled finish. On the bottom can be clearly seen the anchor emblem of the IJN. This bowl was recovered from the island of Peleliu in the 1980's. It was told to us by the individual who found them, that the bowls were discovered in stacks in caves occupied by the Japanese defenders. Scattered damage to the enamel finish, no holes.
