Eiko・Yasuki Steel・13/16・Japan

Razor being sold on consignment . The razor is in my possesion and ready to ship.




For sale is a vintage Eiko kamisori style wedge razor made in Japan. They are made of Hitachi Yasuki steel which is the modern equivalent or industrially made version of Tamahagane steel made from iron sand.

Basically this means the steel is very pure, has a high carbon content and a very fine grain structure. Hitachi / Hitachi Metals Ltd., is one of the top manufacturers of high grade metalproducts in Japan. 


The scales are straight and the blade centers nicely. There are stains left and right but the edge is clean. For the steel being so pure it's very normal to see staining.


13/16 (0.830")

Near Wedge

2.250" cutting edge


The razor comes with the edge it was send to me however I can hone the razor at no extra charge or leave as is. Just let me know when checking out.
