This is a Filarmonica Doble Temple straight razor that was made in the city of MatarĂ³, in the province of Barcelon Spain. It is in excellent condition, both mechanically and aesthetically. The blade etching has been removed from this blade's face. As often happens with use, etching is fleeting and becomes faded and ratty in appearance. Some straight razor users prefer not to have etching, as the majority of quality razors have no etching. Although many had both etching and no etching on various models in order to cater to customer desires. 

This is one of the Jose Monserrat original Filarmonica razors and not one of the razors made after Jose Monserrat's death. The proof of this is in Jose's name printed on the tang, the razors made after his death do not have his name printed on them. These Filarmonica razors are much in demand and are one of the most sought after straight razors ever made.

Filarmonica - The company started manufacturing straight razors in 1915 in the city of MatarĂ³, province of Barcelona. They are considered as one of the very best manufacturers of cutlery, knifes and razors on the planet. About 1990 the company shut down all operations and closed their doors. Filarmonica started making razors again about 2015, under new management, but these razors are lacking the "Jose Monserrat Pou" signature on the tang and are generally considered to be inferior to previous made Filarmonica's and are not good shavers. Some may disagree with this belief, but it is a generally held opinion and so stated on razor forums and elsewhere.

The blade size on this razor is 15/16 wide, is hollow ground and is made of carbon steel. On the tang front side is marked "Doble Temple" indicating the temper in this blade has been twice hardened. The tang is both top and bottom jimped for a better non-slip grip. The scales on this razor are beautiful pearl white celluloid. Recently honed and stropped to provide a smooth, close and comfortable shave, this razor comes to you guaranteed shave ready. These filies are truly great shavers, "bar none".
