Very nice razor Purchased this razor with the intention of learning to straight shave without the upkeep of a straight and I am incredibly pleased with it.
Worth the money!!! I love this blade holder. It is a great weight and the blade exposure is awesome. Definitely worth the money.
Good Nice look – 1/2 blade well held.
Barber approved Gift for the husband (a pro barber). He loves it so I'm pretty sure you can't get a better recommendation than that.
Dark Stag Folding Kamisori Razor
A highly requested variation on one of our flagship products, the Dark Stag Folding Kamisori Razor. Featuring the same great shave and rapid blade change mechanism that is still making the original Kamisori so well known amongst the barber community. Now features a folding design for greater portability and a slightly different take on the style. The design of this straight folding razor makes it perfect for shaping, styling and shaving beards and moustaches.
Changing the blade takes 2 seconds: pinch the head to drop out the used blade and pop in the replacement. Combined with the spring-mounted one-touch blade holding mechanism, the Folding Kamisori can be opened easily for cleaning and disinfecting. Perfect for the busy barber. The folding handle allows for greater ease of storage, portability and safety. We also find some barbers prefer the weight, size and balance for getting a perfect shave with the Folding Kamisori. Particularly if the barber is used to the hand-feel of folding razors. It comes with a genuine leather pouch for easy and stylish storage when not in use.
The Dark Stag Folding Kamisori Razor has a specially moulded replaceable blade razor head. This means you can choose your favourite brand of blades, as it can use any standard double edge blade. We cast the razor in the exact design of the traditional Kamisori razor, a homage to the 800+ years of Japanese barbering history. This design is combined with rich dark wood scales (or handle) that is lightweight yet robust enough for the daily rigours of the shop. Making it perfectly suited for shaping, styling and shaving your customers’ beards and moustaches.
One of the most common issues with replaceable blade razors, or shavettes, is that the blade can become stuck or difficult to remove when wet. Which when shaving someone can mean every time. To combat this we added a secondary system for removing the blade, which involves simply sliding the top cover off and taking the blade out. This is perfect for a deeper clean at the end of the day, or for the particularly hygienic barbers among you between shaves.
You may have seen other companies manufacture a similar product, but they all use expensive, custom razor blades. Through our ingenious 3D modelling design process we invented a way for standard double edge blades to be utilised. Cutting down on both cost and maintenance.
With one edge used per client, this provides the most cost-effective route to a perfect shave. The spring-mounted one-touch blade holding mechanism is opened easily for cleaning and disinfecting. Changing the blade takes 2 seconds: pinch the head to drop out the used blade and pop in the replacement. The fastest blade change on the market!
What is a Kamisori?
What is a Kamisori Razor exactly? The Kamisori dates back to more than eight hundred years ago. Used by Buddhist monks to shave their heads, a symbol of the Buddhist faith. The most glaringly obvious difference between eastern razors and western razors is the lack of scales (handle) for the blade to fold into. This can make storing them and their portability an issue, but this is not a problem you’ll find with the Folding Kamisori razor!
As the Japanese borders gradually opened to the rest of the world, western-style razors were introduced to the masses. This has not majorly impacted the sale of razors there though… the Kamisori is still the most preferred shaving tool in Japan today. We like to think of the Dark Stag Folding Kamisori Razor as East meets West, incorporating the best of both for the ultimate shave in one transformative barber tool.
However, if you prefer a more traditional western straight razor, why not pick up the Dark Stag Premium Straight Razor.
