So I'm thinking of one of these http://www.chefknivestogo.com/kanenagarazor.html
This would be a new direction for me so any advice would help.

What help do you need? You need to know how to sharpen it?
I'm kidding of course. Just buy one! What's the concern?

Why so cheap? Level of finish?
The other one is $400
Don't really know what my concerns are, never used one before.

I have the other one and I love it. Haven't tried this one, but for the price, I doubt you can go wrong. Kamisori razors aren't cheap
I honed a couple of these for CKTG as well.

Probably F&F, no damascus, etc.

Wondering if its possible to use a takeda kogatana as a razor.
Dont know if ao super is fine enough to do that.

note: 6k stone is the highest I take my knives, no strops

You can use anything as a face razor. It's just that an actual face razor is easier to get to do the job superbly. The point is, I could spend an hour on a kitchen knife and get it to shave comfortably, or I can hone my straight for less than 5 minutes and keep up with it. I mean, restoring the thing from chipped and dull to shave-ready took under an hour.
It's just that a razor is built for the job. If I were a wandering adventurer, I'd sharpen and shave with my EDC before entering a town. Other than that, I'll keep a razor on the shelf.

You can sharpen almost anything up to razor sharpness, but it usually takes longer and just not as safe sometimes.
That said, 6k is to coarse for my skin.
