Iwasaki razors are still made today in the traditional way at the Iwasaki workshop (called "Sanjyo Seisakujo") located in Sanjo, Niigata Prefecture Japan, a renowned metalworking center. Swedish Sandvik steel is hand forged and laminated to a softer jigane low carbon steel to create a shaving instrument that is as beautiful as it is supremely functional.
