Default kamisori +- 50mm (c130)

A small kamisori i did to complete 2014. C130 water hardened, 220c tempering (2 times). Stab linen wrapping . More or less a 5/8 for more or less 50-55mm honed. The shave is not bad at all

Your Kamisori looks OK if not rather crude in it's inital design, I have honed many traditional Kamisori razors, and I also restored and hone lots of straight razors from many shaving forum members from all over Europe, I also shave with and collect straight razors and have a particular interest in vintage western style Japanese razors and I own quite a few If you visit my facebook page you can take a look at a few of my razors plus some of my restorations. https://www.facebook.com/jamie.mahoney.9279

You're obviously not familiar with Ben's work which is understandable as you're new here but he doesn't just hone and restore straight razors, he actually makes them in many styles and a quick look at his profile here and on other larger fora as 'cardoso5fr' will reveal the threads that show how good they really are and how much others appreciate his skill.
