Mastro Livi CarboInox Kamisori, 7/8

In my collection I have many kamisori razors, both traditional ones made in Japan - and all of them being "vintage" - as well as modern ones, most of them being made by Mastro Livi. It has been quite a long time since the last time I used a kamisori, so today I opted for this breathtaking Mastro Livi CarboInox kamisori. It is a 7/8 blade with a mesmerizing Mastro Livi twisted carbon damascus steel in the middle layer, wonderfully making a perfect match with the shiny stainless steel outer layers. A super performing shaver, this Mastro Livi kamisori gives a very very close shave while delivering a lovely smooth sensation on the skin. Not to mention the superlative performance of Mastro Livi "Pennello Italiano" shave brush, a super silvertip badger brush having a handle made of five different woods and an insert made of semi-precious stones with the colors of the Italian flag. The soap did a magnificent job - Saponeria Artigiana is, in my opinion, one of the best Italian shaving soaps - which found in Pinaud Clubman Classic aftershave a great companion. Superb shave!

  • Pre-Shave: RazorGuy Pre-Shave Oil
  • Soap: Saponeria Artigiana Almond Shaving Soap
  • Brush: Mastro Livi Silvertip Badger "Pennello Italiano", 24mm knot
  • Bowl: Gerby Bowl
  • Strop: Mastro Livi Medium Loom Strop "Coramella Italiana" and Hand Palm
  • Razor: Mastro Livi CarboInox Kamisori, 7/8
  • Post-Shave: Alum Block
  • Post-Shave: Umbrian Extravirgin Olive Oil
  • After Shave: Pinaud Clubman Classic

Mastro Livi "The Last Classic", 6/8 Half Hollow, Round Point

I am very proud for being the owner of this Mastro Livi razor. Although I am proud of every Mastro Livi razor I own, this one certainly is a very special one. It is the last straight razor made by Mastro Livi using the worldwide famous "new grind" blades of which I made a video showing the making of this masterpiece. This was the very last razor made with such blades and, as such, I wanted very special and exclusive scales. I remember it has been very hard to make that choice and, at the end, I opted for natural buckeye burl with silver nickel inserts and three dots made of three different mother of pearl types. I think it is a great razor to celebrate the end of that amazing story in which Mastro Livi brought back to life a stock of old razor blades and forgotten for a very long time. An important story part of the Italian straight razor making history.

  • Pre-Shave: RazorGuy Pre-Shave Oil
  • Soap: RazorGuy Shaving Soap
  • Brush: Mastro Livi Perugia Eco-Silvertip, Stabilized Poplar, 24mm knot
  • Bowl: Old Barber Bowl
  • Strop: Mastro Livi Medium Loom Strop "Coramella Italiana" and Hand Palm
  • Razor: Mastro Livi "The Last Classic", 6/8 Half Hollow, Round Point
  • Post-Shave: Alum Block
  • Post-Shave: Umbrian Extravirgin Olive Oil
  • After Shave: Old Spice Original
