HANDMADE KAMISORI : I have been making kamisori for ~2 years using various tool steels. I have now settled on Forging with a variety of steels including Japanese Shiro Suminagashi steel with a 2mm thick Shiro white carbon steel core. 1095 Damascus and 01 tool steel. These are now for sale though initially in limited numbers. Can be used right or left handed as more of a Western grind. It has taken a great deal longer to get to the point at which I feel confident in my product and for this delay I apologise, however, making a kamisori razor which is truly shave-ready is a long and detailed process. Prices range between £85.00 and £150.00 with £8.00 postage and packaging.

Some Further Examples:
The following are examples of kamisori which I have hand-forged at my forge in Cornwall. These are made from Suminigashi steel which has been acid-etched in order to bring out the patern created by the multiple layers and types of steel used. They shave beautifully and will be for sale in the very near future.
