I stock a number of reasonably priced brand new and boxed kamisori as can be seen below. They arrive with me 'factory sharp' which is not shave-ready. I hone each on arrival to ensure they are shave-ready.
HANDMADE KAMISORI UPDATE: I have now been making kamisori for ~2 years using various tool steels. I have now settled on using none of these and instead favour Japanese Shiro Suminagashi steel with a 2mm thick Shiro white carbon steel core. It looks beautiful when etched and holds an incredible edge. I am shaving with one currently while testing it but will be making some for sale during Q1 2019. 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. I expect the price that I sell these for will be in the order of £150.00.
Below are a couple of pictures of early examples, including mistakes!
FREE OF CHARGE when ordered at time of purchase; Natural rattan wrapping in traditional criss-cross Japanese style over red felt. At time of buying a kamisori send me an email to notify me that you would like this added, thank you.
