Vintage Electric Razor Co Razor

£45.00

This 6/8 razor made by the Electric Razor Co has been sanitized, cleaned and polished, honed and stropped so it is shave ready. For full details see our policy. The blade is marked  "Hamburg Ring" with some attractive engraving which is still visible. Unfortunately it does have significant signs of corrosion on the face of the blade on both sides as well as the tang, but clean steel along the whole of the edge. The tang bears the words " The Electric Razor Made in Germany ". The scales have been replaced with black Dovo acrylic ones which have a third stabilising pin. This razor would be a good option for someone who fancies giving straight razor shaving a try at minimal cost.

 The Electric Razor Co was owned by J. Christopher Friedmann and Charles Lauterung and the trademark "Electric" was used by them between 1864 and 1909. The reference to “Hamburg Ring” refers to the type of grind. Hamburg was once known for its high quality razors and at one time the Sheffield companies exported their blades to be ground there. This razor is marked "made in Germany" which would suggest it was both ground and made in Hamburg.
