Back to the razors

  • C125SC steel hardened to HRC 61 (at the edge)
  • 8/8" (26mm) wide blade
  • ~70mm cutting edge
  • one-third grind
  • Mirror polish blade with hand polished hamon line
  • Stamped maker's mark (HG)
  • Glossy ebony scales with horn/copper sandwich wedge
  • Phosphor-Bronze pivot bearing washers
  • Copper wedge/spacer pin with nickel-silver washers

  • Shave-ready (Honed with one layer of tape.)

Shaping, heat treatment, and even final sharpening/polishing are all done by hand, one by one. As a finishing step I use Japanese natural stones and Kanayama Cordovan Strop. The razor gets a test shave before it leaves the shop.
