This is my first in Razors, but when the nice woman offered it for $5 I couldnt resist. Told me her grandfather kept it in his safe along with another. Both were used by his father to shave and passed to him later on to learn with. The original box has a patent date of May 24,1881 and June 29,1889 and by the looks of the handle and blade, this one has some years to it. I havent had the time to do my research on this yet but I look forward to seeing what I find out. I am very fond of german antiques mainly due to that fact my father was in the Army trained in germany during the vietnam war. He married my mother there and I have been there a few times early in life. I have great memories of the land the people and of coarse the food. I loved it all and hope to return sometime before I get too old to travel...Hope you like it, get more details soon.
