    This Hoshi Tombo dropped through the box today and when I saw her Man you should have seen the smile on my face, well I've finally captured one I've been looking high and low for a long time for this razor in a NOS the spec's are 13/16 quarter hollow with a Monkey tail, an extremely beautiful looking razor I can't wait to try her out she certainly appears to be shave ready so I'll just give her a good stropping and away to go.
