I just received my first straight last week and love it. I have always loved the look of a nice, traditional kamisori and want one. I see some on eBay that say vintage and ships from Japan for what I think is a decent price but really have no clue where to start. I don't mind getting one that I will need to get cleaned up and made shave ready.

Any thoughts or could someone guide me in a better direction? I don't have a lot to spend on one up front and I know I'm not providing much but thought I would give it a shot.

Thanks for your help and time!

I guess what I am asking is what should I look for?  I see them with different names but have no Idea what is a decent brand and what is the Walmart equivalent so to speak.

Freddie, you posted in SE razors, not Straights Razors and Accessories. You could be waiting awhile before the experts see this and give sound advice.

I'm with you though, i want a kamisori really bad, but won't be able to afford it.

I can't move this, but I would caution you about buying kamisori on the internet. If you like, send me pics of the ones that you're considering and I'll help you weed out the bad ones. 

I'm no expert, I've only been using kamisori for about 5 years, but I do know what to avoid with them.
