Default Has anyone heard of zanchif or znchifar?

My student brought me a cymbal, kind of heavy, I believe it's a 16" crash, very hard to see the stamp but it looks like it says zanchif or zanchifar or sanchifar.

It has a cursive logo above it that looks like it says vibra and april below it. I really can't make it out. Just wondering if anyone knows of anything like it.

50s-60s...later changed name to Zanki. Italian rotocast cymbals. I have a couple. Decent instruments!

Not the worst recapture of Zanchi and Zanki history:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zanchi_%28cymbals%29

Nice cymbals - softer sounding than Zildjian As.
