Friedr Schlemper

NOS Friedr Schlemper Focus 6/8 Straight Razor

Made to last, the Friedr Schlemper Focus 6/8 looks nearly untouched, and boasts a genuine sense of beauty that will easily become a focal point in any collectors shaving routine.  

The 6/8 Extra Full Hollow Ground, Swedish Carbon Steel blade featured on this incredible razor is accompanied by both the models original "faux ivory" bakelite scales, and beautiful nickel-silver inlay.

Made in approximately 1950-1955, this irreplaceable vintage straight razor looks like it was made only yesterday; a true testament to its high-quality craftsmanship, as it is rare for vintage razors to remain this unbelievably pristine.

An undeniable work of historical art; the clean, simple design of the Friedr Schlemper is not only breathtaking, but a genuine delight in the world of straight razors. 

Comes with the original box, plastic sleeve, and tag, and includes the original Certificate of Warranty. Like any high-end collectible, we ask that you advise us on whether you would like the original factory edge, or made to be completely "Shave Ready" 

If you entrust to us this special privilege, like all other straight razors leaving the Classic Edge, we will take great care to ensure this edge is perfect in every way. As always, a final polishing will be done after honing, to give this razor the remarkable shine it had the day it came out of the factory.

Like any other razor sold by The Classic Edge Shaving Store, this razor is professionally honed to "shave ready" by Phil. This $25 Value is our way of showing you that we are willing to take our Customer Service to the next level. After all, nothing is worse than buying a Straight Razor as a gift for a loved one, only for them to open the box and realize that they now have to send it away to be sharpened before they can use it. Also included is a free follow up honing that can be used once your razor is in need of a fresh edge.

Please allow a minimum of at least 2-3 business days for us to prepare your Straight Razor, as this is not a product that you buy just anywhere. It needs special attention to detail as it will come in contact with your skin, and must be sanitized and polished before being coated with Renaissance Wax. This careful and considerate attention to each razor is the difference between a shaving store that will rush your razor out the next morning, and our own Artisan-owned shaving store that is nothing less than extreme when it comes to making their clients 100% satisfied. It's our job to ensure that your experience is perfect. We cannot thank you enough for visiting our website, and we hope you have a great day.

Note: When you receive the razor for the first time, carefully take it out of the box and remove the oil with a piece of tissue. The razor has already been stropped and it completely "Shave Ready", so go ahead and shave! You will get 2 shaves before needing to strop (depending on how aggressive your beard growth is. Each time you have used your razor, rinse the blade with hot tap water. Carefully and thoroughly dry the blade and in between the scales with a piece of tissue paper before you close it. We recommend to oil your razor after every use. To maintain a sharp cutting edge, strop regularly prior to shaving.
