    If you pay for the postage to and from Tokyo I'll home it for you for free.

    Drop me a PM if you are interested.

    I would definitely take that offer!!

    I was working with another Marine from Hansen last year. Similar problems and he never found anyone that honed razors. He finally bought hones, Nortons, but had mixed results. He rotated out before he got his razor shave ready.

    My last tour in Okinawa was 1971, with a first in late 1966. I looked at Hansen on Google Maps not long ago and can still pick out areas that were familiar.

    Semper Fi !!

    Best Regards,

    Howard

    there is a knife shop in the labyrinth that is Makishi Public market on Kokusai st. They have a HUGE selection of knives, stones and the like. Im not 100% sure, but I think they offer honing/sharpening services as well. Bought a sashimi knife from there, it has served me well for the past year or more.

    EDIT: If you need help finding it, ask any of the guys working the fish market in Makishi. They can take you there.
