Respecting the traditional Japanese razor, ShaveSmith crafted this Kamisori Straight Razor Kit that’s ready to use straight out of the box. This razor will give you the ultimate shaving experience, the old school style. Each one is handmade with exact precision and since the handle pattern is always different, you get a 100% unique razor.
Kamisori Straight Razor has a high carbon steel blade with a fine polish. The grind is symmetrical so it can easily be used with both hands. This razor has a curved handle formed by hammer and anvil. The last step of the process is wrapping it in leather.
For all those who use a straight razor, it won’t be a problem to switch to this one since the technique is pretty much the same. There’s an option to customize the tip of the razor. You can request it to be round, barber’s notch, french point, tanto or square.
It takes a lot of effort to make a high-quality razor like this one. When it’s finished, each one goes through a high-standard shave test and when it passes, it’s washed and cleaned properly in disinfecting liquid and 90% isopropyl alcohol. Before shipping, the razor is treated with a long-lasting moisture barrier. This way, when used, it’s resistant to rust.
In this kit, besides the Kamisori Straight Razor you also get a beginners strop. The length of the strop is around 20 inches and it’s hand cut and hand dyed from medium grade leather. You can choose between sleek onyx black, natural, vintage brown and cargo brown. Before you start shaving, strop the surface of the blade with the fine leather side and you’ll get a smooth shave every time.
