This Tilsmith German made cut throat is a mystery, there is no info on a manufacturer called Tilsmith. It's possible this razor was made by one of the big names in the industry for a department store of outfitter by the name of Tilsmith. So, let's stick to the facts we do know.
The razor benefits from some fancy acid etching which reads 'Hamburg Ring Super', the tang is stamped 'Tilsmith Made in Germany'. The scales are in good nick, they look original.
Apart from a small area of pitting on the face of the blade there are no other flea bites and no water stains.
The razor has seen a fair bit of wear throughout the years but Bill Drury who polished, honed and stropped this razor for us tells me it honed up treally well and it shaved well too. Bill has since treated the razor to an overnight soak in Barbicide.
17mm wide blade (5/8ths of an inch)
Heavy full hollow ground, the reference to Hamburg Ring relates to a cluster of Hamburg based grinders who ground cut throat razors on behalf of various German and English manufacturers.
