The Alexis Witte Cutlery Company had offices in both Germany and the U.S. and operated from a factory at 81 Warrent Street in New York from the 1880's moving to a different factory in Brooklyn in 1917 where they continued to produce razors and their own scales until 1930. The company also produced razors under the Classic, Hustler, Witte, Copper Head, Goldbug, Solace, The Lily, Beauty marks. This razor has no other marks and probably dates from the mid 1920's.
