These Kamisori or traditional Japanese straight razors are individually handcrafted using White #2 steel. White steel takes a particularly fine edge. Two hollow ground surfaces meeting as flat bevels - these are easy to hone to an exceptional edge and the razor can be used with either hand for either side of the face for an exceptional shave!
