    Yes indeed, Japan!

    The thing about shaving with a Tamahagane razor, at least the one Bruno made out of that nakago section made by Japanese master swordsmith Hata Mitsuyo in 1640, is like it's essentially shaving with a soothing, warm stick of butter. Beautiful heft in the hand, very heavy, it's a smaller blade length, like a Kamisori, so you can enjoy a long shave, and while it's sliding along your face, beard disappearing, is you can forget how terrifyingly sharp these razors are and the edge a Tamahagane blade can hold.

    I Got Cut Tonight!!!!! It Bit Me!!!!

    Been a long, long, long time since I was cut(f&*&kin Dubl Ducks!!!), or even nicked, and I didn't even feel it till there was a long thin line of blood running down my cheek from about an inch under my eye....

    Far too long since I used this razor...of course, I'll have to shave with it again tomorrow or the next day, and get away cut free....

    Are the curved R. Saito razors any good, or are they just for looks?

    I have never met a Saito, curved or otherwise, that was not a fantastic razor to shave with.
    I own 4 different iterations of his and love them all. Great sound, great edge, and great resulting shave.
    Cheers.

    From where does one buy a Japanese razor?

    Here in B/S/T or through eBay for me. There are tons of NOS Japanese western razors on eBay, and from what I’ve read, nearly all of them are made very well.
