    Vendor Description

    Vintage Tanifuji Maxfligold 100 Japanese straight razor in NOS condition w/ Original Box!

    This razor was designed and manufactured by the legend and master Fukutaro Tanifuji who taught Mr. Iwasaki the craft of scaling and finishing razors. At one point, Tanifuji was an important production partner of Iwasaki western straights. His stamp is the kanji on the rear of the tang. This is one of those razors where you can see that legendary Tanifuji quality coming though. 

    He used the incredible high carbon Swedish "silver steel" of a high purity and fine grain. It was then heat tempered to the ideal hardness for a smooth shaving edge. You can see the deep shine of the steel which is a characteristic of Swedish steel Tanifuji blades. 

    The thickness of the spine on a Tanifuji razor is greater than most Japanese razors. This both adds to the performance of the blade and is another testament of his dedication to quality. No expense spared! Against these cherry translucent scales this blade is very stunning. Needless to say this blade shaves like a dream. The fit and finish is top class. A Tanifuji of this caliber is a must for any collection!

     Blade Width: 20.5 mm or ~13/16"

    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.
