    Default 13/16 Taiyou #45 Square Point HG, Tamahagane Steel, VGC., Shave Ready

    I've decided to limit my collection to vintage Sheffield razors and am therefore selling off everything else:

    Offering a very clean 13/16 Taiyou #45 hollow ground square point, made from Tamahagane steel, in original transparent yellow plastic scales and cream wedge. This razor is in very good condition, with almost no hone wear. I have done nothing to this razor except to hone it (Jnats with Nagura only) and shave.

    The razor is freshly honed on Japanese natural stones: sharpening and pre-finishing on a Shinden Hon Suita using a full Asano Mikawa Shiro Nagura progression (Botan, Tenjyou, Mejiro, Koma), and final finishing on a Nakayama Asagi Tomae with Tomo Nagura slurry and then plain water. Honing was done with a single layer of .007" tape.

    Asking $135.00 with free shipping via Priority Mail to the continental United States; APO, FPO, and international addresses will be shipped at cost. If you are interested, post your claim here as per the rules and send me a PM. Questions are welcome, and thanks to SRP for offering this service to members!
