This is a Shapleigh straight razor that was made in Germany for the Shapleigh Hdwr., Co., in St. Louis, MO. This is Shapleigh's fairly standard plain, but top quality razor. Shapleigh is known and respected for having made simple razors that could be depended on to provide great shaves. This razor shows no previous usage. This razor has a 6/8 wide, carbon steel, hollow ground blade with brushed satin faces. This razor is in perfectly flawless working condition in every aspect. I replaced the broken original scales with these brand new, pure white, celluloid scales. Recently honed to provide a smooth, close and comfortable shave, this razor comes guaranteed shave ready.
