Vintage Straight Razor (New Old Stock)
Once upon a time, there were Craftsmen that believed in producing something that was not only an outstanding shaver but a piece of Art. Long are the days when the Foreman would say "You are responsible for that razor you are making, so don't cut corners and take your time!" Stamped tangs, perfect grinds and beautiful scales are now rare and hard to find in NEW condition. Here we have a New Old Stock World Master Straight Razor by Otto Busch that will be the pinnacle of your shaving experience and collection. This is German Craftsmanship at it's best. Truly a piece of Historical Art, this 6/8 Extra Full Hollow Ground blade with Swedish Carbon Steel is as good as it gets and will hold an edge that will scare the hairs off your face. Imagine a shave where you hear every hair cut, almost like when you butter your burnt toast. Effortless, smooth and the only way you know you are actually cutting hair is from the sound. Matched with gorgeous durable Celluloid Scales with "World Master Reg. Magnetstahl" marked on the scales, you will feel the perfect balance of old Craftsmanship that can not be copied today. Made in approx. 1950 to 1955, this irreplaceable Straight Razor looks like it was made yesterday. Never shaved with and with it's original factory edge and finish, this is the type of razor that makes a grown man drool like a baby. Comes with the original box, plastic sleeve, tag and 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 "Shave Ready" If you trust us to take on this special privilege we will take great care to insure this edge is perfect in every way. A final polishing will be done after honing to give this razor the shine it had the day it came out of the factory. Also keep in mind that we give a Complimentary Follow Up Honing at no extra charge which can be used at anytime. Basically a day at the Razor Spa! Please keep ind mind how important maintenance is for your irreplaceable Straight Razor, and for this we always recommend Straight Razor Oil. With any good quality Straight Razor a good quality strop is needed, so check out our Strop Section for your strop needs.
