This is a C-Mon BLACKIE straight razor that was made in Germany and distributed by Carl Monkhouse of Ellicottville, N.Y. C-Mon razors are very highly thought of and sought after. This razor is in all around perfect condition. It has a 5/8 wide, carbon steel, hollow ground blade. This blade carries ivory scales. Thes scales are aged with charismatic darkened coloration and beautifully textured grain. They are in perfect luxurious condition in both mechanical and aesthetic aspects. luxurious by nature, ivory will go very nicely with any blade, and ivory will improve the looks and value of any blade, but because of its scarcity and higher value over most scale materials, it is only installed on the very highest quality razors. These scales are held together and attached to the blade with a threaded pivot pin and micro hex nuts. This razor was recently honed and stropped to provide a close and comfortable shave and comes guaranteed shave ready.
