Made in Solingen, Germany. This razor has a 5/8ths (18.5mm) wide blade which is made from carbon steel.
The non-stainless carbon steel is forged and tempered to maintain its edge for long lasting sharpness leading to a close yet comfortable shave.
The blade is etched with this text 'Razolution Carbon Steel - handmade in Solingen'. The tang is stamped ' Handmade Solingen Germany'.
The scales are wonderfully different, Razolution call this look 'Waterdrops'.
Your razor arrives with you in a smart, Razolution cardboard box.
Fine 'blue' ground carbon steel with Waterdrops plastic scales.
Solingen, Germany is the steel manufacturing capital of the world and, as such, needed to take precautionary measures against fraudulent products bearing the prestigious name, “Solingen.” In 1938, Solingen became the only city in the world whose name is a registered trademark. To bear the name Solingen, all key manufacturing stages must have been processed and finished within Solingen, and the product must meet strict quality standards. This razor was made in Solingen.

With care, the blade is surgically sharp, there are numerous good quality, informative YouTube videos on how to shave with a cut throat razor, our advice is watch a few beforehand.
These razors leave the workshop in a 'shave ready' condition. However the cutting edge of the razor (the fin) may bend over ever so slightly. Stropping will right the fin. This razor should not need honed for at least 9 months if stropped properly. We recommend you watch some YouTube tutorial videos before your strop this razor.
To prevent corrosion, after use, you must dry the razor thoroughly and store in a dry environment. The razor will benefit from a light application of razor oil if it's going to be stored for more than a few days between use
Great value and just the right size if you're an inexperienced user of this type of razor.
We love the scales, they're so different from the usual ebony, ivory and wood finishes we have become accustomed to over the years.
