Description: This exquisite Japanese-style straight razor was custom built by Trevor Woolfson. In Japan, it is called a kamisori. Trevor custom builds his razors to be used - each razor he creates has a tremendous elegance, style, and timeless quality. Trevor's eye for detail, form and function clearly comes through this kamisori razor.
The 7/8 premium RWL-34 stainless steel blade features a full hollow grind. RWL-34 is a premium powder metallurgy cutlery steel manufactured by ERASTEEL in Söderfors, Sweden. Because it is manufactured from rapidly solidified powders, the microstructure of the steel is much more uniform. This gives the steel much higher strength and durability while maintaining very high wear resistance. The top section is etched to resemble a hamon differential heat treatment.
The knife is accompanied by a marble carbon fiber stand.
Exceptional work throughout!
