Vintage Crown And Sword 5/8ths 'Magnetic' German Cut Throat Razor

In stock
In stock

This shave ready, restored Crown And Sword 5/8ths straight razor is priced to sell.

Online research tells us that this razor was made by the Carl Friedrich Ern manufacturers, based in Solingen, Germany. The company made Razors for brands such as Turban, Ern, Raccoon, Moustafa, Gong and Crown And Sword. They were founded in 1873.

The acid etch on the blade has been mostly polished out over the years, but in the right light you can still make it out: "Crown & Sword, Magnetic" with the Crown & Sword logo.
The tang of the razor features the stamping "Crown & Sword", the Crown & Sword logo and "11".

To be perfectly honest, we don't know when this razor was made, at a guess probably pre WW1.

The blade is in good condition with no chips or dings in it, there are some water stains present.
The scales are not original, they are however very attractive faux horn resin.

The original box has seen better days but has stood the test of time. However, the box parts are from two diffrent Crown & Sword branded boxes.
5/8ths of an inch blade, ideal for a started cut-throat razor.

Please, please, please watch some of the very good, informative YouTube videos that show how to use a cut throat razor before your maiden shave.

Silver steel with faux horn resin scales.
