So... what do I have here?

Discussion in 'Double Edged Razors' started by Claven2, Jul 13, 2018.

    Picked this up on the bay, and to be honest, the seller misrepresented the pics, I thought it was a solid handle I just hadn't seen before. There was no picture of the end of the handle showing it had been crudely cut off - I suspect the handle is off either milady or and old type ball end, and it's been crudely cut short to fit the nickel plated case.

    That said, I didn't over pay very much and I'm intrigued. I THINK I have an incomplete 1920's Vienna Vest Pocket 4 piece travel razor like this one:

    what do you guys think? Mine is a Made in Canada model and has no markings on the case and clearly has the wrong handle, but otherwise it looks pretty close. Thoughts?

    Now I wonder if I'll be able to find a handle for it...???
     
  1. Just return it and search for the proper complete set.
    Seller's mispresentation sounds like a good enough reason to request a return.
     
  2. +1! Good advice.
     
  3. Nah, for the price I gave for it, I'd keep it just for the cool made in Canada old type head. All my other Old Type razors are USA models. If I ever find a correct handle, bonus, but if not, I'll stick it on another handle for now.

    Get a good collection of heads.

    Worked for me.

  5. Yeah, I have a few now. I have thin and thick old types, a Fasan slant, Aristocrat, Slim, a few Superspeeds, a New Improved and some modern Merkur offerings.

    I have't had a SC or LC New yet, but they are on the proverbial list.
