Vintage Eiko Yasuki Steel Razor・13/16・Japan

This razor is being offered for sale from a seller under consignement. It 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 minor stains left and right, but the edge is clean. For the steel being so pure it's very normal to see staining and surface blemishes.

 

13/16 

Near Wedge

2.350" cutting edge

 

The razor is sold with the edge it was send to me. However the razor easily passes the hanging hair test and nicely shaves hair from my forearm. If undecided then one can easily order a honing service.
