Shigeki Tanaka Blue #2 Damascus Razor. These Japanese straight razors are called "Kamisori" and this one is special and made by our friend Shigeki Tanaka. Tanaka san is a 4th generation blacksmith from Miki Japan and their clan has been making blades for farmers and residents for 100 years in this rice-producing region on the other side of the mountains from Kobe. As is customary, Shigeki's father sent him to Echizen to make knives under the direction of Shiro Kamo and he finished his apprenticeship about a decade ago and then took over the business. The razor you see here is hand-forged from Damascus steel over a core edge steel of Aogami #2 steel. He heat treats these razors to HRC63. The Kamisori Straight Razor is polished to a razor edge. Blade is 2" (50mm) long, and overall length is 6". We only get a couple of these a year so if you're interested don't delay. It comes with a black Nylon Wrapped Tang.
