This is a dubl duck Special No.1 razor that was made in Solingen, Germany. This razor is in excellent aesthetic and physical, defect free, working condition in all aspects. The blade shows very little previous hone wear. This razor has a 5/8 wide blade that is made of carbon steel, with a hollow grind. This blade carries it's factory original butterscotch colored, 3-pin, celluloid scales. They are in excellent defect free condition. Most all dubl duck razor models have pretty scales with well designed patterns, but like a couple other top quality razor brands the scales leave a little to be desired. Many of the dubl duck scales have problems and care must be taken when purchasing an aged duck razor to avoid these problems. These problems occur with the celluloid used in dubl duck clear or perlex type, cracked ice scales that are often easily warped, internally cracked and easily tarnished brass. Because of these problems the dubl duck Special #1 is my favorite model of all dubl duck razors. The Special No.1 is made of the same steel the other ducks are made from and so shaves exactly the same as all other dubl duck razors. If your looking for a great shaving razor that is backed by a name of known and proven reputation, dollar for dollar, the Special No.1 is always a much better value for less money than most all other dubl ducks. Included with this razor is a generic, no name, razor box that is in excellent condition. Honed to provide a smooth, close and comfortable shave, this razor comes guaranteed shave ready.
