You are bidding on a vintage straight razor produced in Germany. This razor is a full hollow grind, and was likely produced sometime in the early 1900s. This razor is perfect for a beginner looking for their first razor. There are several aesthetic issues with this razor, including some minor staining and pitting. These aesthetic problems do not affect the shave.
The scales are celluloid, and have an inlay that says "Adoration - Hand forged"
The width of the razor is 5/8" The scales are snug and close centered .
The razor has been cleaned and honed. I do my honing using a Chosera 1000 stone, followed by a Coticule with slurry followed by a Thuringian natural finisher. The razor has been pre-stropped and is ready to be used. A vintage box is included.
