Hi!


For a while now, “Iwasaki” doesn’t produce new Tamahagane kamisori anymore.
“Ryoichi Mizuochi”, disciple of sword smith “Shigeyoshi Iwasaki“, is the last person
still making “Iwasaki” kamisori, though not made from Tamahagane.

Recently I discovered a very interesting product, being very close to the
Iwasaki Tamahagane kamisori!

At this moment, there are 3 types of Tamahagane kamisori, made last year, with the help 
of 'Ryoichi Mizuochi' at 'Sanjō seisakusho' & sold by Munemasa Cutlery Co., LTD.:
  • Tamahagane Kamisori Tou Mark (Spring of Kouanji) 
  • Tamahagane Kamisori Tou Mark (Summer of Kouanji) 
  • Tamahagane Kamisori Tou Mark (Autumn of Kouanji) 
Seeing the tip of the kamisori, it is “Iwasaki” written all over.
The shape of the blade and handle is inspired by a kamisori made by “Chiyozuru Korehide” 
(the idol and mentor of Iwasaki and all the blacksmith in his generation) and given to ” Iwasaki Kōsuke” himself!

Besides being extremely rare and precious, there only exists 1 of each! 
(“Spring”, “Summer“, “Autumn”)

For a bit more information, see my article https://historyrazors.wordpress.com/2018/12/26/藤-to/

Be aware it isn’t cheap, you will need to go deep in the wallet;
think in terms of “a-very-grown-up-Iwasaki-price”
