"Hadosan" made in Tokyo. A vintage Japanese straight. Probably the 50's; could be much earlier. It was not a dirt cheap razor even if dirty and corroded! It took 5 hours to unpin, clean, hone, and make it shave ready. No "Japan" stamped on it for export. Scales are like acrylic plastic, It could have been a Japan sale only razor. All done with die maker' stones and backed sanding blocks after the contours were level and continuous. So done because the brazed in blade is almost as thin as my Schick injector and I was concerned. No fancy polish; just a great shaver. The shave this AM made my day!
A fun day was spent doing the clean-up! I had to be home anyway for an electrician that was 'sposed to come...Riiiight!

Sorry mike i only have a point and shoot camera. Think of a razor blade stuck into a top frame. Like a Le Coulter. If I don't space out, I will try for a close up tomorrow.
