Vintage 'Tennis' Solingen 7 Day Straight Razor Set

£595.00

Unavailable



This is a very rare Seven Day Tennis Razor Set. Made by Dovo in Solingen, Germany probably in the 1950s complete with its original leather case.
The 9/16ths Extra Hollow Ground razors are in superb condition, there are no signs that these razors have ever been used for shaving. The seven razors have been stropped by a restoration expert here in Scotland to make them 100% shave ready. The light cream scales are in very good condition indeed, no splits, no staining, no age cracking. This does not apply to the Sunday razor, read Product Details. Each razor has the number 60, two tennis racquet's (logo) and 'TENNIS SOLINGEN' stamped into the tang. In Gold etching they have 'EXTRA-HOLLOW-GROUND' on the face of the blade in gold plating. The spine of each blade has the day of the week etched in gold plating on to the spine of the razor - Monday to Sunday.

The leatherette case is in good condition. On the rear it has a scuff mark, and there is a crease where the case opens. Otherwise it's in very good condition internally and externally.

WE SAY


The set works out at only £85.00 per shave ready razor!
Very unusual, a real collectors piece, especially with the razors in such good condition.


PRODUCT DETAILS


Size: 9/16th
Grind: Extra Hollow Ground
Scales: Cream celluloid

The razors are in excellent condition, however the scales on the Sunday razor had cracked, Bill Drury who stropped the razors and fixed the crack thinks the fitter who fitted the scales applied too much pressure on the rivet which over the years stressed the scales so that it split exactly where the rivet is situated. Bill has repaired the crack with a super glue type bonding.
The razors are 'shave ready'.


INGREDIENTS


Carbon steel blades, celluloid scales, leatherette case.


HOW TO USE


With extreme care, these razors are very sharp indeed.
