    Is this tamahagane iwasaki ?

    Years ago I had his stuff verified by an official Iwasaki distributor and a former straight razor barber who used Iwasaki razors, among others, for over 30 years. Both told me that this seller sells legitimate stuff.

    A bit of harberinging

    I had a few of these in spike point, French point, and round point. The one in these photos is NOS but not mint. I sold it back in June 2011. The ones I sold in the lot were mint and measured 13/16 to 7/8.

    Oh man. That would be terrible. :blink: I can say that I've never bought a straight razor on eBay. I may have bought a DE a few years ago but I don't remember.

    How Many Shaves - Feather AC/SS version - Guard

    A lot of these blades actually get smoother after the initial sharpness has dissipated. I once used a KAI Mild in a Shavette type razor for well over 2 months. I don't shave every day (or even every other day) but I'd say it was 40+ shaves.

    MWF: 3+ @ $10.99/Puck

    This is where I've purchased MWF over the years. It's a retailer in the UK and I live in NY. It used to be a little cheaper but I think the price is still competitive. The Old Apothecary It's $15 shipped for one refill soap. It's $38 shipped for one soap and ceramic dish.

    Buying a Feather SS - should I get theJapanese style or the traditional stake razor ?

    A cheaper option is to get the Feather SS folding in teak, which is now an option.

    Women using Straight Razors.

    My lady friends use non-folding Feather or kamisori razors. They find it easier to maneuver than a razor with scales.

    Everyone has a different preference in edges but Schlieper razors are excellent.
