This is a dubl duck Special No.1 razor that was made in Solingen, Germany. Is is in pristine, mint, blemish and defect free condition in every way. It looks the same as it did the day it walked outta the factory. The only difference in it's condition since it came from the factory, is that I honed it just slightly to improve the factory honing, so that it is "really" shave ready. This razor's beautiful blade measures 5/8 wide, is made of carbon steel, with a hollow grind. This blade carries it's factory original butterscotch colored, 3-pin, celluloid scales.
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 with 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. This dubl duck comes with a plastic case, not many dd Special No. 1 razors come with any kind of case or box, almost none do. This razor has been honed to provide a smooth, close and comfortable shave, this razor comes guaranteed shave ready. It's mint condition makes it a very nice shaving comopanion.
