(SOLD)

Very rare, especially is such state!
1 Orihi isn’t used in the past, the others lightly.
Signs of wear and old age present.
Orihi are truly rare & extremely difficult to find!
Unidentified markings are present on Orihi
The Orihi also have unique one of a kind file marks 
on their handles, which is typical for sword smiths 
(they used such file marks at the handle of their swords)
Being very interested in the history of Orihi (“Orihi type kamisori“),
my best guess would be that this set was made around 1800-1850
without a doubt before 1875.
The Orihi were made of Tamahagane. In ancient 
times there was no need to mark such razors with the 
symbol/kanji “Tamahagane”, since they all were made 
of Tamahagane (Tamahagane swords don’t have 
“Tamahagane” kanji either of course)
The first Orihi were made by swordsmiths 
(hence the “sword – file marks”), they used the 
same steel as they would use for their swords, 
being Tamahagane. It was only later that the 
Japanese smiths started to use foreign steel!
These Orihi are about 18mm wide
The stone is lacquered and attached on 
a wooden piece, with marking (same as on box)
The hard & fine Asagi coloured stone (unknown origin), 
measures (without slurry stone) 1792914mm 
I wouldn’t be surprised that it would be a 
Nakayama, or Narutaki or Shoubudani!
The only thing missing on the box is a lid at one end


More to come within next few weeks!
