Considering the age of this razor, dating as it does from the mid 1900's, it is remarkably good condition with no significant corrosion or pitting.

The man holding a fish was a trade mark used by Solingen based razor maker Paul Kohl. This trademark together with the "Fischerwerk" and " The Fisher" trademarks were registered in 1926 by his company H & W Dirlam of Solingen. The WITTE trading company uses this fish trademark today but unfortunately no longer produces razors, only scissors mainly for use in the hairdressing industry.

Supplied honed and shave ready. For details see our policy.
