Centuries of tradition. Wood grown for decades. One year of development. All for the moment of the perfect shave. The accomplished design of the blade is a tribute to Japanese blacksmithing. Let the razor glide across your face and feel the attention to detail that makes this a truly iconic piece. The sustainable walnut, maple, spruce, and beech wood of the handle has been densified and hardened through a novel process to the extreme so that it can withstand water and soap with ease. After shaving, the razor is much too precious to disappear into the case: The polished tang and back and the innovative shape set visual accents.
