Of Japanese design and manufacture, the KIYA Ichogake Kamisori Straight Razor is instantly recognizable. It has a single cutting edge, just like straight razors from European manufacturers such as DOVO and Thiers Issard. But unlike these cut-throats, a Japanese straight razor is a single continuous piece of steel with a flat-headed blade. This implement is made using kigami, which is a superior carbon steel formulated for increased strength and sharpness retention. The handle of the kamisori has been bound using rattan for a firmer grip. Please keep in mind that sharpening and honing this kind of razor takes practice and involves a steep learning curve, even if you already own a European-type straight razor.

Being an old and respected manufacturer of kitchen knives, KIYA can boast of considerable experience concerning cutting implements made using steel. Although the modern business still specializes in the manufacture of kitchen knives, it has used this experience to launch unrelated products such as nail clippers and straight razors.

Our answer
The razor is supposed to be used with either left or right hand.

Do you offer a "hone" service ? is this razor pre-honed and ready to go ? What would be the strop and whetstone best suited to this blade in your opinion ?? maxmax11/03/2013

Our answer
1. The razor comes pre-sharpened from the factory. 2. Any good leather strop will do just fine. We recommend an Oozuku stone for sharpening. 3. Unfortunately, we do not offer honing as a service.

Is this razor shave ready?Drew10/07/2013

Yes, it comes pre-sharpened.

How is this sharpened? Have multiple Japanese H20 stones and a dozen high end straight razors. Have shaved x 43 years with straights. How can this razor add to experience?Robert Carter07/17/2013

Our answer
It is sharpened the same way as a wedge or semi hollow straight razor. Using this kamisori is different than using a normal European straight razor. The blade is heavier, much less flexible and thicker. Moreover, this particular straight is non-folding, so holding the razor is different as well.
