    He has done that, Tom. He didn't start with us. Not sure why he started with a Safety Razor forum before us but...

    Tom, I believe I’m having the 2 I got from you added into my will, the new one I bought a few years back is great but not even in the league of those

    Yeah...The older ones are really nice, Tc. I guess proper use and care seem to make them better over the years?

    Yep, I think these are quite seldom. Have only seen two of them the last maybe 5 years on the japanese vintage razor market.
    The stamp itself is shown in a picture with a stamp box of Kanayama (right edge below). I think Jim Rion posted it in his blog years ago. But may be wrong on that, could be another source.

    Might be some of that stuff I saw on the Bay a long while back?
    Is that a Jumbo in there?
