These razors are forged under the name Takami, by the blacksmith Amano-san. These "seconds" are razors that came from the workshop with very minor faults in the cladding line. They perform just as well as a regular Takami razor and are a great choice for someone who wants to get a kamisori on a budget.

About Amano san - As a young blacksmith working on his own, Amano san began steel forging and crafting Kamisori (Japanese straight razors) around the time that Kent of Inglewood opened in 2014. In 2015 he began mailing us prototypes to shave will, and report back our results. From the beginning his edges were fantastic, and with some feedback, his blades quickly took the comfortable, balanced blade that you see today. He makes a right-handed, left-handed, and ambidextrous razor all from White Carbon Steel, and are mostly known under the brand-name “Takami” meaning “Sky & Water”.
