Kinsho "Sakigake" Extra Steel, Lightly Restored

JPY6,860

NOS, by Kinsho, a quite well known maker.

A few surface rust marks here and there, but only on the front side, which has been removed lightly to keep the brand marking on the blade. The back is in very good condition, pretty much immaculate. If you don't mind thinning the marking on the front side you can further polish it up to your liking. I can instruct how if you are not sure what to get, etc.

The scale is in good condition with nice sheen, with "Sakigake" mark in beautiful Kai-sho (Kai style, most proper?? Dunno how I should translate this Sho-do term...) writing. I didn't have to do anything to it.

The model name "Sakigake" refers to the act of Samurais rushing to the front of battle to gain fame. There are many block prints and paintings depicting famous Sakigake episodes. Interesting model name.

Good quality razor made by well known maker, in pretty good condition. Perfect for novice users, but IMO it should be good enough to satisfy collectors too actually.

This razor is not shave ready, please enjoy honing yourself. It should be very easy since there's no deformation of the blade, being NOS. So in that sense, it might be too easy for novices to practice on???

Item is in Australia. Shipping will need to be adjusted depending on the destination. I don't hear from enough Aussie razor fans (well..., how am I supposed to when I am closed..., hey...?), Aussie razor fans most welcome.(^^)
