This is a J. A. Henckels #50 1/2 model straight razor that was made in Solingen, Germany. Henckels is considered by many to be one of the very best razors ever made. They certainly have had the experience as they started in business in 1732. I would place this razor as being made sometime around 1950. Showing almost no previous hone wear this razor is in flawless blemish and defect free condition. The blade is a 5/8 wide, is made of carbon steel with a hollow grind and has very lustrous mirror finished blade faces. This razor's blade carries genuine bone, 3-pin, replacement scales. They are in perfect condition. This razor will make a nice daily shaving companion. It has been recently honed to provide a smooth, close and comfortable shave and it comes guaranteed shave ready.
