This is a beautiful Eric Anton Berg straight razor that was made in Eskilstuna, Sweden. This razor is in superb condition and shows practically no, if any previous honing or usage. Swedish razors have a stand alone quality that distinguishes them from other razors, because of their unfailing quality of steel and manufacturing standards. Not that they are better than any top quality razors, but they are as good as any razor made, with a superb unfailing reputaion. I don't know when this razor was made, but it is on record that the company started in business in 1879, with no records I can find as to when production was stopped. An educated estimate for this particular razor would be in the 1920 realm give or take about 10 years. This razor's blade is 9/16 wide, is made of carbon steel with a hollow grind and lustrous mirror finish blade faces. This blade carries it's original celluloid that are in like new condition. Recently honed to provide a smooth, close and comfortable shave, this razor comes guaranteed shave ready.
