    Vendor Description

    Vintage Inoue Tosuke Kikusui Steel Kamisori Japanese straight razor w/ Original Box!

    This is a gorgeous example of one of the highest quality Inoue Tosuke blades ever produced. This is due to the fact that it is made of a solid piece of high purity and fine grain structure Kikusui steel. This steel allows for a very fine edge that will hold its sharpness longer than other steels. Since Kikusui steel has not been produced for many years, these are very special and rare vintage blades. These razors have been decoratively boxed to signify their exceptional quality. I have some of these in my personal rotation because they shave smoother than the majority of kamisori that I have tested (I have tested a lot!). These are a choice addition to any shave rotation and a luxurious way to spice up your daily shave!

    Blade Width: 16.3 mm or ~5/8″+

    Condition: hair moistened, tip out/root in

    HHT-0 - shave: The hair can be shaved immediately at the holding point. This is strictly spoken not a true HHT, but it does tell us that the edge is capable of shaving. [all other attempts must be made at least half an inch from the holding point]

    HHT-1 - violin : The hair doesn't cut, but it "plays violin" with the edge. This is due to the shingles catching the edge, but it's not sharp enough to penetrate. On a full hollow razor, a faint ringing sound can be heard. On all razors it can be felt with the fingertips that hold the hair.

    HHT-2 - split: When it is dragged across the edge, the edge catches the hair and splits it lengthwise.

    HHT-3 - catch&pop: When it is dragged across the edge a bit, the edge catches the hair and pops it. The severed part will jump away.

    HHT-4 - pop: The hair is popped immediately when it touches the edge. It still jumps away.

    HHT-5 - silent slicer: The hair falls silently as soon as it touches the edge.
