Est. 1911-1933 (time of Union plant opening in Olean, NY to Voigt Barber supply closing) Union Cutlery Co, Inc. "Spike" Razor, made in Olean NY, USA for the Voigt Company, St Louis. Mo. The razor comes in its original box. The blade measures 9/16, wedge grind. I've honed and stropped the razor to shave ready, checking the bevel under magnification to ensure it is free of blemishes that could affect the shave.
*Important note for future honing: 1 layer of tape used on spine during honing process. Tape removed prior to stropping. Thanks for looking, check out my store for more straights and items.
