    Default Kanoyama Strop Appreciation thread

    I am hoping to stop by Mr. Naumi's place
    to check in on him in the next few weeks.
    This craftsman spent seventy years making
    Kanoyama cordovan strops and has recently
    retired. I was thinking of a way to show my
    appreciation and wondered if others would
    like to as well. So, here is the plan:

    Post a picture of your favorite razor and
    a Kanoyama strop. Just one razor and one strop.
    Follow the guidelines, please. I will make a PDF of
    all of the pictures along with a note of appreciation
    in Japanese, get it printed at Kinko's and give it to Mr. Naumi.
    The deadline for contributions is April 19th.

    Let's show some love, guys...

    I think that would be a lovely tribute. It would be a good idea to start a new thread.
    I wonder if Naomi San realises how revered his workmanship is?

    Not sure what you mean...isn't this a "new thread"?

    Sorry think I've had too many beers! Thought it was a part of another Kanayama thread I was looking at.

    So far,

    201 Views
    6 posts
    3 pictures

    Just based on a quick search "Kanoyama" there
    must be a lot more than 3 members of this forum
    who have a Kanoyama strop.

    Think about this... A lone artisan who has labored
    away alone in his shop for seventy years. He finally
    retires due to age. No party, no gold watch, no one
    to recognize his hard work and achievements. If you
    know someone on this forum or any other forum who
    has a Kanoyama strop, please encourage them to take
    a moment, compose a picture and post it on this thread.
    It won't cost a dime, just a few minutes of your time...but
    it may give an older Japanese gentleman, who sweated
    so much for his craft, some joy in his twilight years.

    I will extend the deadline a few more days week, until April 25th.
