    Special Note - This vintage 55 Pechika razor is used but still in excellent condition. A beautiful example of fine Japanese craftsmanship, this 50+ year old Pechika is uniquely crafted with its various grinds and notches which resembles bamboo, it is sheathed in beautiful faux horn scales.  The blade is made with high quality Yasuki steel ヤスキ鋼 (which is sometimes known as Tamahagane).  There is a very slight taper towards the toe and some superficial surface marks, but overall this Pechika is very nice.  From my own personal rotation, this Pechika has given me exquisite shave after shave.  The blade is tight in its scales and closes perfectly centered.  The scales show light wear and are still very shiny. Quite a rare blade in this condition.  A beauty to keep for a lifetime.

    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.
