Not sure exactly but probably made in the 60's. I don't think this razor was ever used, it looks brand new. The handle has a polymer coating on it that makes it slightly sticky when wet. It isn't as light as it looks, the polymer must be coating metal, it is quite nicely balanced too. I suppose this razor must have looked pretty modern when it came out. It does shave very nicely, not too aggressive, but but gives a close shave. It is nice to have a razor that isn't a Gillette or a Merkur. These razors are also considerably rare, I bought it in a razor lot on ebay. I must give thanks to John (yasuo200365) for some of the info above and for helping me identify it on ebay.roughrider said:Never seen one of these before. How old is it?
If you bought the one in the lot for $80 you got a great price too. They typically sell in the $100 range if they are properly identified.Not sure, but I think I may have found one and paid through the nose for it.
I was watching one in a lot that ended recently for nearly what I paid for the one razor, but the pictures were not all that great. I'm sure there was one in that lot- it went for a relatively high price considering what else was in it.
So if this razor feels 'sticky' how do you keep it clean?
Can't wait to get my hands on the one I scored!
