Congratulations ... it's a sharp little blade, elegantly packaged.

I bought one a few months ago ... Takeshi is a nice fellow to deal with.

It's the 50mm.. Thank God I almost bought the 45mm but was talked out of it last second. I had never seen them in real life before, now in imagine even the 60mm wouldn't be too big.

Takeshi Aoki is the proprietor of aframestokyo, based out of Hawaii.

He sells all sorts of neat stuff, including Japanese steel, JNATs, strops, etc.

The 50mm is a nice size, although I'm tempted to try the 60mm at some point. I would imagine the 45mm to be too small for me ...

I don't think I would want to go smaller than a 50mm...the 60mm does indeed seem like the perfect size (~2.36 inches). However, I also noticed the price jump for those extra 10mm...Sad...I'll be the first to admit I am way too inexperienced to know if it would be worth it for me...I have just been really wanting an Iwasaki razor Biggrin!

The 50mm almost perfectly fit on my Dovo strop so no need for 8 or x patterns which I am happy about
