- About blade sharpening of Japanese razor -
In case of Japanese razor, we first sharpen a blade with a rough whetstone and then finish the sharpening process with fine whetstone. We use the same technique to sharpen Japanese sword, but razor blade sharpening requires high level technique. In case of worn razor, some rust may present within the surface of a blade or even the blade may be curved. The important point for Japanese razor is that it can not shave hairs unless the edge of a blade which touch to skin is horizontal. The blade sharpening craftsmen of Kiyotsuna sharpen not only to recover sharpness of the blade, but also adjust the edge of the blade to get horizontal, examining carefully the rust within the edge of the blade.
- History of Kiyotsuna -
In the Meiji Period (1868-1912) Tokyo had three blacksmiths known as "The Three Greats of Edo." Chiyozuru specialized in the triangular knives, Ishido in the plane-blades, and Takiguchi in the carving knives. All three belonged to blacksmith families dating back to the Edo Period (1603-1868). Takiguchi Yoshimune, the first, lived near Kameido Tenjin Shrine, in Koto-ku, Tokyo. The Kameido Tenjin Shrine housed the God of Blades (Amakuni) and is located in the neighborhood of old traditions known as Shitamachi. The family lineage of Takiguchi Yoshimune the First was succeeded by Takiguchi Unokichi the Second and Takiguchi Ryuhachi the Third, and the brand "Kiyotsuna" is impressed on their blades. The Kiyotsuna brand was born under the supervision of Takamura Koun, a representative sculptor of Japan. Munakata Shiko, a wood block master of the 20th century, was a regular user of Kiyotsuna knives. Their blades are made by the traditional technique
called "Kuro-uchi ( black forged knife ) ".
