    Default Would appreciate help identifying this Kamisori please.

    Hi everyone, I received this Kamisori yesterday (eBay purchase) and would like to find out what style and maker this is if I can. Name:  10937726_10202409654123218_618532516_n.jpg

    Hello, here is my attempt:
    Starting from the top right it says:
    日本 - nihon or nippon - "Japan"
    刀打 - the reading of these kanji is a bit difficoult. I found the opposite combination 打刀 (うちがたな) the meaning anyway should be the same "forged blade" or "forged katana" 打= to forge 刀=blade, katana
    吉妻作 - Yoshizuma saku - "Made by Yoshizuma"

    In the Middle row we have:
    特級 - tokkyu - "high grade"
    登録商標 - touroku shouhyou - "trade mark"
    誂別 - choubetsu - something like "special" or "uncommon"
    剪刀 - sentou - "scissors", surgical type maybe (but why on a kamisori?)

    If i am not mistaken i believe middle kanji word meansTAMAHAGANE which is basically the same steel made to make katanas with. You have a pretty high end Kamisori. I own 6 of them.

    Don't tell me I need to learn to read Japanese in order to get this completely figured out, lol. Either way, it's a great razor and a great shaver.
