Shear Mattaki SMK Replaceable Blade DE Straight Razor / Shavette

Is one that seems/seemed popular. Hard to find outside of ebay. Its unique because it uses a regular de blade for the cutting edge. And seems to be sized like a regular Japanese style kamisori if you remove the scales.

My question is, why is it so hard to find the ones that don't use proprietary blades?

Are you asking why is it so hard to find a shavette that uses a DE blade? Because there a tons of shavettes that do that, from higher end Dovos to cheaper ones from Parker to lots and lots of super cheap ones from Southeast Asia. There seem to be more and more now that use a full DE, especially from Italy.

I've never seen a "kamisori" style DE shavette. The one you reference only seems to come in a western style.

There is a company on ebay called MD that takrs the handle off and sells as a kamisori.

They appear in google image searches vut i cant find outside ebay that has one for sale. Most i see for sale on actual company sites use a de blade snapped in half
