I am selling several razors from a straightrazor user and collector located in Switzerland.
This is a genuine Iwasaki. Highly regarded as the best kamisoris on the market.
I don't think it's ever been used much if at all.
In order to produce this Kamisori, Jigane (soft iron) and Hagane (Swedish steel) have to be forged together. This razor will shave through thick and thin.
Although being sold as 5/8 I measured the razor to be 6/8.
Swedish Steel (SK2)
Carbon Content: 1.15 - 1.25%
Total Length: 5.90"
Length Edge: 1.75"
Size from spine to edge: 6/8
Rattan Wrapped Handle
Country of origin: Japan
Comes in a nice wooden presentation/storage box.
The razor comes as it was send to me. It shaves hair from my forearm effortlesly and passes the hanging hair test with ease so I would say it's shave ready but if in doubt you can always order a honing service and it will be re-honed. Personally I don't think it's necessary.
