Does anyone have experience shaving with the Kanenaga specifically? Mark says it's White #2 but I was curious about its Rockwell rating? -Josh

Never tried it. Only have a Nubatama and honed a few.

JOSH <> I reckon, you spoke with Mark direct about this razor, but it is, in fact, Yellow #2 steel (kigami 2).

Melampus, thanks for the thorough replies, and the pics, I appreciate it my friend. Thanks for the clarification on the steel, there appears to be someone on ebay selling these for $130 and he specified yellow steel as well (of course, ebay can be a gamble). Not sure about the HRC. Follow up and let us know what you think after the first shave. I'm hoping to jump on board soon. Josh

FYI, I talked to one of the distributors from Japan and apparently the HRC on the Kanenaga is 60 - 61.
