Vintage Daishi 172 Yasuki Steel (Modern Tamahagane) Japanese straight razor

! Warning ! For the real steel addicts out there… Your heart rate may increase while viewing this beauty.

This quarter hollow grind Daishi 172 is made of Hitachi Yasuki Steel which is the modern Hitachi metals version of Tamahagane steel derived from Japanese iron sand. It is one of the highest quality steels made in Japan due to its very high carbon content and extremely fine grain.

Classically it would take a Japanese blacksmith days without sleep to produce a small amount of this treasured material. The purity of this steel allows for a very sharp edge that will hold its sharpness longer than other steels.

The quarter hollow grind blade is powerful and hefty in a fantastic way.

Be careful, Yasuki steel shaves so well it can become addictive. This will assuredly be one of your favorite razors in your collection!

Blade Width: 21.2 mm or ~13/16″

Guaranteed Shave Ready
Shave ready honing service complementary with purchase! I guarantee a smooth shaving edge. Customers are delighted by the smooth and comfortable shaving edge on my blades. This razor will be finished on a high end Suehiro, Naniwa, Ozuku or Nakayama Japanese natural stone with a taped spine and then will be stropped with a fine Kanayama cordovan strop for the ultimate sharp and smooth shaving edge. This is a process that requires much time and skill. Every razor is sanitized with alcohol before being securely packed. Note that due to age, all vintage blades will have imperfections. All sales are final and all items are sold as is.

Complementary USPS Priority shipping in the USA
$30 International Shipping + $10 for each additional razor
All shipments tracked and insured
