Japanese Razor with Box - Translation Request
Article about: Hello All, I am new to this forum and stumbled across it yesterday while researching some Japanese optics. I am an avid collector of WWII Japanese Ordnance and Tropical Field and Personal Eq
The box reads in red at the top, from right to left:
Koukyu Jidou Anzen Kamisori
Luxury Automatic Safety Razor
Jidou, "Automatic", really is "self powered." A bicycle is a Jidou-sha, self-powered cart
Then vertically in blue:
The face of the razor has a star with the kanji 清 which means pure; English "NEW" below the kanji.
Along the bottom is "New Device Patent Kanoya Model"
新案特許 カノヤ 式
Shinantokkyo Ka-no-ya shiki
Kanoya is a proper noun and might be 鹿屋
Many thanks Guy. Your help is very much appreciated. Knowing what things read really helps to bring these interesting pieces to life.
Very much appreciated,
