Vintage David Issard 'Simplex' 6/8ths Straight Cut Throat Razor

In stock
In stock

Made in 1934 in France by David Issard.
The tang is stamped 'SIMPLEX'. With the reverse of the tang featuring 'Manufacture, David Issard'.

The razor comes with a 'Noveltex' branded cream coloured box, which has fared very well over the past 83 years. The razor has very little use over the years, it's in very good condition. The razor has been stropped, it is 100% shave ready.

This fine razor was part of a large collection, the owner can no longer use a cut throat razor due to a medical condition. He reckons he used the razor once or twice then lightly oiled it and put it into storage.

Very carefully! Be sure to watch many youtube tutorials on the best ways to use a straight razor before you embark on your maiden shave.

6/8ths wide blade, probably silver steel, good quality faux horn celluloid scales.
