This 1950s, Closed Comb, Slant Head Hoffritz is in good condition throughout. It comes complete with its original metal travel case and two, still wrapped, vintage razor blades from the same era.
The razor shows some wear and tear, there is a patch of missing plating on the blade holder base where the blade rests, and tiny hairline cracks on the non-knurled shoulder of the handle. These cracks are common on the Hoffritz and will not detract from the overall shaving experience.
Hoffritz razors are now very rare indeed. Ian Fleming the author of James Bond books mentions Bond in New York - "Hoffritz on Madison Avenue for one of their heavy, toothed Gillette-type razors, so much better than Gillette's own product".
Made in Solingen, Germany by Dovo, the Hoffritz razor was sold in department stores in the USA. This particular razor was made in Germany and supplied to Coles a famous, upmarket department store in Chicago. The velvet-lined box features the Coles logo.
The black coloured lining shows wear and tear although the case opens, closes and stays shut as it should do.
Externally, the case is in excellent condition, shiny and bright throughout with no loss of plating and no dents.
Priced to sell.
