never seen one myself but like most Japanese straights should be a fantastic shaver, and very nice looking!

That's great looking. The scales are especially beautiful.

Thanks Men, I must admit it's a difficult task trying to find a vintage Japanese razor that's not a good shaver, I like to think that most of us would agree that when it comes to sharp objects the Japanese have a head start on most of us.

Hi David,

Believe it or not that came up on the UK forum TSR, the description was fairly brief and the photo's were poor, but I saw it for what it was immediately.

Good show, Jamie. Those razors are rare, indeed. I saw one sometime ago — and I'm trying to remember where — but I've never held one, nor shaved with one. A prized find, my friend, especially one this handsome. Enjoy it.
