Traditional heritage is as sharp as ever with the Banshu Hamono Japanese Razor. Just like shaving is a ritual for every man, the ritual behind this Japanese Razor is rich in history. Dating back more than 200 years, production of the Banshu Japanese razors were some of the earliest blades used daily. The Banshu razor often played a roll in the apprentice geisha taking full advantage of the blades incredible craftsmanship in removal of fine neck hair before applying their traditional white makeup. Made of multi-layer steel, the blade is finished off with red and tan locally produced textile and packaged in a kiri wood box. With the resurgence of hand crafted goods, there is still hope for makers like Banshu Hamono to keep the tradition alive.
