More Information

This vintage Gustav Schaaf razor has a 5/8 carbon steel blade and attractive scales. The blade has been polished to a mirror finish and while there are still some signs of historic corrosion evident it is in relatively good condition. One side of the tang bears the words "GUSTAV-SCHAAF SOLINGEN-GERMANY". The reverse side has the words "48 5/8 GOLDSCHMIED" meaning Goldsmith in German.  The scales are unusually made of white metal with a raised dimpled design and have a stylized flower design at each end. There is jimping to the upper and lower tang.

All in all an excellent opportunity to purchase an unusual and attractive razor at a reasonable price.

Supplied honed and shave ready.

Gustav Schaaf was a straight razor manufacturer registered as operating in Solingen in 1925. The razor probably dates from this era. The design certainly has an art nouveau feel to it.
