Details

The Dark Stag Kamisori Razor has a specially moulded replaceable blade razor head. We specially cast it in the exact design of the traditional Kamisori razor. What this means is that it can take the standard double edge razor blades that are available from most retailers.

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 have invented a way for the standard 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 can be 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.

What is a Kamisori?

What is a kamisori razor exactly? The kamisori razor dates back to more than eight hundred years ago, where it was used by Buddhist monks to shave their heads as a symbolism of Buddhist faith. The most glaringly obvious difference in eastern razors and western razors is the lack of scales (handle) for the blade to fold in to. This can make storing them and their portability a bit of a issue, but as long as this is thought of in advance it holds no major disadvantage. The blade of a kamisori is also shorter, an authentic one never exceeds two inches. The blade is also uniquely shaped for a more effective sharpening.

As the Japanese borders gradually opened to the rest of the world, western style razors were introduced to the people. This has not majorly impacted the sale of razors there though. The Kamisori is still the most preferred shaving tool in Japan today.

If you prefer a western straight razor, why not the Dark Stag Premium Straight Razor.
