    Googled and not much info can be found other than link to B&B forum.
    Zethlent's kind enough to provide some information. If any of you have shaved with this. Please let us know.

    The 1st one posted is mine. I don't have any info about it other than what was posted in the B&B thread. In short, I saw one, I "had to have one", and Seth (Zethlent) helped me get one . Huge thanks again BTW.
    I meant to make a thread about it but I got a little lazy.
    It's the only Japanese razor that I have, so I can't compare the shave with other blades, but I love the shaves. It's also the gosh-darned coolest razor in my rotation.

    I posted in the other thread to ask you but that's ok everyone ( myself included ) was too busy quoting your pics :P

    Have you by any chance honed it yet? Been at least 5 months now how is it?

    Thanks mate!

    OK, that's probably enough pictures of this one...


    I have to ask myself, is it necessary to have more than one thread about this razor?

    Dunno but I'm glad there is. I missed it first time around and that is one cool looking razor. I'm Tadisha Machida envious.
    Be careful how you treat people on your way up, you may meet them again on your way back down.

    Just a clarification, the correct spelling and word order is: Machida Tadashi. (for search engine purposes of course)

    Oh and here it is in Japanese: 町田 正
