Overall an amazing example of an early 20th century razor. Supplied in the original Gebr. Weyersberg blue plastic box.

The Gebruder Weyersberg Company is a well established one that still exists today. It was founded in the late 1700's with the company manufacturing knives and swords. In 1883 Weyersberg merged with another Solingen based sword-making company, Kirschbaum, to become Weyersberg, Kirschbaum, and Cie. The newly founded company used traditional techniques for sword making and each of their then employees specialised in one task in the manufacturing process. This division of labour was something very new at this time and by 1900 the company was the largest in Solingen, employing around 1,200 workers. By this time the company also produced weapons, motorcycles and bike parts as well. 

The bugle or "Corneta" brand was first registered in 1896. By the early 1900 the company had expanded into producing razors. During World War I the company made the Corneta brand razors in large quantities and many were shipped to Brazil and Colombia. It is likely that this razor bearing the numerals 6000 was made during World War I or shortly afterwards.

The razor has been honed and is supplied shave ready. For details please see our policy.
