The blade Book interrupt (Hon-wari-komi) is made sharp by sandwiching hard steel (hagane) and soft iron, and also has the toughness and durability of a blade that cannot be achieved with hard steel alone.
The blade may oxidize if it remains in prolonged contact with a humid environment. It should therefore be wiped after use and, if necessary, occasionally coated with camellia or olive oil.

Long ago, the hardware industry in an area known as Banshu (southwest of Hyogo Prefecture) is said to have begun manufacturing razors as early as the 18th century. For around 250 years, different models have been created to meet customer needs. The craftsmen themselves even responded to requests to resharpen the blades they had made. It is thanks to this special relationship that the blades can be used for a lifetime.
