This is a Zak straight razor that was made in Solingen Germany. It is in near new condition with a 13/16 (almost 7/8) mirror finish, semi round pointed blade, with almost no prior use, if any. The blade, tang and monkey tail still have all the bluing 100% intact. It opens and closes snug and smooth on the pivot pin and perfectly centered between the handles. The off white colored celluloid, 3 pin handles, are also in near new condition. Included is the original box that is in excellent condition. Recently honed, this razor comes shave ready. This is a nice shaving razor with good balance and heft, due to it's being a little heavier than a standard 5/8 blade.I accept PayPal, Money Orders, Cashier's Checks and personal checks will be held until cleared.
