This is a Sta-Sharp straight razor that was made in Solingen, Germany. Sta-Sharp razors are one of the most sought after razors ever made. They are considered to be one of the most beautifully ever designed razors and also one of the very best shaving razors ever made. All Sta-Sharp razor were made exactly the same (with a variety of scales) by F. Koeller & Company in Germany, They were distributed by different sources. Some were made and distributed by Sears & Roebuck in Chicago, Illinois, and are so marked on the tang. STA-SHARP was a trademark used by Sears & Roebuck from 1927-1940. These are the most recognized Sta-Sharps in the U.S. The rest were made and sold/distributed to other world markets and had "F.Koeller & Co., Germany stamped on the reverse side tang, as this particular razor does. This razor is in perfect blemish and defect free condition all around. Only the original scales were damaged and so were replaced with stunning, beautifully textured, MOP scales. Luxurious by nature, MOP will go very nicely with any blade, and MOP will improve the looks and value of any blade, but because of it's scarcity and higher value over most scale materials, it is only installed on the very highest quality razors. These genuine MOP scales are in perfect blemish and defect free, like new, flawless condition. These scales are held together and attached to the blade with a threaded pivot pin and micro hex nuts. This razor's blade is 5/8 wide, is made of carbon steel, and is hollow ground. The front blade face has one of the most appealing and exquisite engravings ever designed for a razor. It is also one of the very most durable engravings as it will not rub off as gold wash always eventually does. This razor comes to you recently honed to provide a smooth, close and comfortable shave, and is guaranteed shave ready. Not many of these razors in existance any more.
