This is a Genco, Gold Seal, model straight razor. Genco razors are known to be very reliable high quality razors. Some Genco's were made in Bradford, PA and some were made in Geneva, N.Y. This razor was made in Geneva, N.Y. Genco razors were made from 1916 until 1965. I believe this razor was made sometime during the later years, but years don't matter, a newer genco is as good as an older. It's the condition that counts. This one is in excellent condition with perfect working mechanics as good the day it walked out of the factory. This razor has a standard sized full 5/8 wide, carbon steel, hollow ground blade with brushed satin finish blade faces. The blade carries celluloid scales of what is called either bamboo styling or finger bone styling. They are in perfect all around condition. This razor has been honed to provide a smooth, close and comfortable shave and it comes guaranteed shave ready.
