This is one i picked up a few days ago, well today I gave her a light honing on the higher grade stones, took a few pic's before giving her the run out tommrow. she's a vintage NOS Japanese Towa made and ground in Japan, a very well made good looking and rather sexy looking blade if you can describe a razor that way, now for the pic's.

Lovely razor there. Congrats!

I've yet to find a Japanese razor that I dislike, so I'm sure you will enjoy using that one. Beautiful, elegant lines. Smile

It reminds me a lot of the razor I shaved with this morning; a Hairop Japanese razor.

Dont leave it to long before you do Celestino, it's not an easy journey for most, but when you crack the straight shaving code then the rewards are high, good luck i know you can do it.

Jamie,
That is a handsome razor. You're right, the Japanese razors are well thought of. Through the years I have shave tested several, but never owned one. Maybe one of the these days.

Every Japanese blade I've had has been superb. They take amazing edges.
