Kamisori Blade Maker Identification

Discussion in 'General Straight Razor Talk' started by Bigmant773, Jul 18, 2019.

    Can anyone place this blade to a specific maker? I found it in a small mom and pop knife shop in Japan, and even got it honed by the old man on a wet stone. An incredible experience to say the least, but I’d live more info on it if someone has any!

    The first kanjis read as 春吉作 haruyoshi-saku (production of haruyoshi)
    The rest of the kanjis are quite bunched up and hard to read as to get an exact meaning.
    Hope that is of any help.
    Edit: wrapping reads as 別誂 本床向剃刀 betsuatsurae hondoko kamisori (special ordered hondoko razor)

  3. Thank you, that's super helpful!! I tried to do a quick google search and didn't find anything. I'm assuming Hondoko is the area maybe.

    I'm not quite sure what hondoko is, could be the company or type of razor. A quick search of hondoko (本床向) gave me alot of kamisori results.
    Try to copy and paste the kanji.
