Description: The Wa-kamisori, Japanese straight razor, is a perfect example of the Japanese aesthetic. This razor was produced in the workshop of bladesmith Shigeyoshi Iwasaki (b. 1933), in cooperation with his apprentice Ryoichi Mizuochi. Shigeyoshi-san is the son of renowned metallurgist and sword researcher, Hiroshi Iwasaki, who is well respected as a leading authority on traditional forging techniques. Made of the finest carbon steel and fire-forged with Rentetsu iron (wrought iron), the blade is polished with natural sharpening stones. The blade bear's Iwasake's mark on the back of the blade. These razors are a source of great pleasure for collectors and users alike. Delivered in a beautiful kiri-wood case.
