    Default Solgen Western-Style Japanese Blade

    Several years ago, these blades were available if you purchased a Kanayama strop. I picked it up at the time, and it's an awesome little blade. It is a shorter blade, but still clocks in at a 13/16 (as do almost all Japanese razors). It's got a wicked little point, but also takes an amazing edge. This one was honed on my Choseras and JNAT with a nagura finish.

    I do not recall ever seeing one of these razors since that initial offering with the strop..

    These are great shavers. I use one that I had Glen turn into a Kamisori style for me. Taxes my old memory a bit but I believe Naomi San of Kanoyama strop fame had these made as gifts to distributors and some customers. That's my story anyway.

    I just honed mine up last week, that point is wicked! This is a top shelf blade for sure!
