The Kamisori Straight Razor is made by fourth generation blacksmith Shigeki Tanaka. For more than 100 years, the Tanaka family has been noted for its fine quality farming tools; however, because of declining demand for farm tools, the family began making cutlery. To enhance their technique, the Tanakas apprenticed their youngest son, Shigeki, to a famous Takefu knife maker. Since returning to his father’s shop, Shigeki has become noted for the quality of his knives and razors. Each razor is hand-forged from a lamination of high-carbon blue steel and a Damascus material consisting of stainless and nickel steel in 14 alternating layers. After tempering to HRC64 the Kamisori Straight Razor is polished to a razor edge. Blade is 2" (50mm) long, and overall length is 6".
