Just went to the thrift shop and pick up this knife (picture below) it's marked manoir craft molybdenum steel Japan. It's has good weight and balance.

My question is have you heard of this knife brand and what style is the knife?

    No, I have not, but I have not heard of many brands. It looks closer to a French Chef's knife style.

      What about molybdenum steel, do you know any thing. I know misono has a molybdenum steel line of knifes.

      Does it have "chef" on the butt of the handle?

      Lots of blades were made in Japan under various names such as Carvel Hall, Old Homestead, Old Glory, Rogers and other ones that all have a very similar look to the blade with the wide hollow grind.

      I'd need to see the handle to see if it is of that class,

          The grind and steel look similar to the aforementioned makes but the handle is different.

          Any of those can be respectable, take a nice edge, and are probably a step up from the old USA Chicago Cutlery.
