HANDMADE KAMISORI : I have been making kamisori for ~2 years using various tool steels. I have now settled on Forging with Japanese Shiro Suminagashi steel with a 2mm thick Shiro white carbon steel core. These will be for for sale during Q1 2019 once fully tested. 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. I expect the price that I sell these for will be in the order of £120.00 plus postage and packaging.
To be for sale: Suminigashi Shiro II steel kamisori. Can be used right or left handed. Hand forged and acid etched in Cornwall. Etching will wear down over time. Natural rattan wrapped handle. £95.00 inclusive of posting and packaging.
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.
