I have a dozen or so western style Japanese straights and three traditional ones. Here are three more I'm expecting from Seth Radke(ZethLent on SRP) in Japan this week and next. Seth had several more I could see myself buying later. One is a western style with kamisori grind.

I have a nice Fon as well and passed up buying another from Seth. I still don't have any Japanese razors with fancy scales yet, like some of yours.

I think I read somewhere Robert that the Hiyashi Diamond and the Fon Golden Star are basically the same maker, Hatachi metals made razors a mark of worldwide pride R.S.C-2 razor steel, in the forge and the fire Hitachi Yasuki factory, the bloom was given shape and finished with water cooled polishing.

H.Y.S. symbol on a Japanese razor is a very good thing.
