    Hi Stefan,
    I have been lucky with my electronic dictionary
    房総
    The reading is Bōsō and should be a place near Chiba prefecture.
    No information on this blade though.

    Hi Matheus, the kanji you're looking for are 東洋、reading from right to left.
    The reading is tōyō or touyou.
    There is a tōyō hashimoto maker, but I don't know if it's the same.
    Usually this Tōyō razors have a different logo, with a kind of bird.
    I have seen some of this ragubi razors before, but never used one.

    Hi, Arsenico!
    Thank you for this information. Is 100% more information than I had!
    We had an enormous influx of Japanese citizens in Brazil after the food crisis after the end of Tokugawa Xógum. Probably this razor was brought to Brazil at this time. I found it at a flea market not far from the Japanese neighborhood at Sao Paulo.
    Would be nice to track its age.

    Thank you very much!

    Can you say anything about this?
    I have the impression that the style is old.
