Just curious to see if anyone knows some history about this item. I bought it a few years ago new. The guy told me that it was, in fact, made in the 1950's. The story was that the company who made it is actually selling old pieces because there are not many hand forgers left. They just sell what is left of their inventory, which goes back many years.
I was surprised, being in my 30's, that Henckels made straight razors. I was only familiar with the kitchen knives. I guess I have a lot to learn.
I know that it is not the most collectible type...but that is not of my concern, because I shave with it weekly.
