    Default Kamisori translation?

    Hopefully this is the right spot to post this. I was wondering if any of you guys might be able to translate the writing on my kamisori and box? I can see Tosuke's stamp, but the rest is a bit of a mystery.

    Wow that is nice! Where did you pick that up? Do they have anymore in sttock? I have been looking at kamisoris lately..I have one and actually am enjoying the shave more than westerns.. The translation on yours says: " if found, please return to Wintchase in Colorado".

    Ha!

    I got it off the classifieds on another shaving forum. It's a nice one.

    I was going to suggest that my Japanese is better than my eyesight, perhaps if the razor were sent to my house I could get a closer look (of course I'm lying, I think my spoken Japanese vocabulary might be 10 words and my ability to read and write is ZERO)

    You know I think there might be, in fact, I've been banned from most of them.

    Argh, I hate my work computer not having Lazarus. I've typed this THREE TIMES.

    OK.

    The box is a pretty generic one, actually--they come on a lot of "Miki" kamisori (Henkotsu, Tsurayuki, Tosuke...). It basically says "Special order best quality true steel Kamisori for Barbers." etc.

    The non-picture part of the insert says something like "Quality Guarantee" and the usual "This razor has the bestest materials and edge and is the awesomest ever" stuff.

    But the razor is a Tosuke, and is a good one, so well done!

    The paper insert has a variation of the same. "Special order True Barbers's Kamisori", "Top class"
