I think Aaron Gibson has and uses a kamisori. Those should be good to go. The 6/8 straight razor from CKTG seems to have soft steel. I've tried several times and cannot get it to take a good edge w/o the edge crumbling away. I have 4 vintage razors that now can tree top hair.

I have the red Tanaka. It is my first and only kamisori to date. It was 'knife sharp' ootb, sharp enough to shave arm hair but not too good on the face. I took it to the stones starting at a chosera 1k, then green brick, then natural 'hard' aoto, then asano nagura progression on an Ozuku. It is now shave ready :) Even though I have almost no experience shaving with the kamisori, I managed to get a couple GREAT shaves with it. Its tricky to use and get used to, but it shaves like a champ! Its also pretty nice to look at :)
