This is a Puma Special INOX. It was made in Solingen, Germany from "Best Pumaster Steel". This particular Puma is in like new, never used, completely flawless condition. Puma razors have the distinction of being among the very top of the most sought after razors ever made. It has a full 5/8 wide, stainless steel, hollow ground blade with beautifully designed gold and silver washed printing on the front blade face. The INOX means this blade is stainless steel and was frozen tempered by a deep freezing process. This deep freezing process is called cryogenic hardening, at temperatures approximately 80 degrees below zero, and the outcome of this method of tempering assures a blade with a sharp and longer lasting cutting edge than plain carbon steel blades. Frozen tempered razors are much easier to take care for since they have great rust resistance compared to plain carbon steel blades. They are considered the best quality blades available. This razor was purchased with broken scales, which may well be why this razor blade is in such like new condition. The original broken scales have been replaced with brand new exotic Texas mesquite wood scales. IMHO, mesquite wood has the most beautifully grained wood with browns and reds coloration's. Recently honed to provide a smooth, close and comfortable shave, this razor comes guaranteed shave ready.
