    Ajikiri, do I need one?

    I have a Takeda and Watanabe 135mm Ajikiri, both a very different as one is double bevel and the other is single. Both are rather light on the wallet.

    Do you shave with a straight razor?

    Knives than razors in short order. For the most part I only use western razors, mainly cause I can't afford a good Kamisori Too many on both sides :p My goto gyuto is a Hiromoto AS but I have been using a CCK 1102 or the Harner more lately. As for Razors I tend to rotate about 25 various...
