The top plate is very shiny indeed. The lightly knurled handle is in good condition, there are some minor, light stain marks on the handle which is very typical of Hoffritz razors. The metal box is in excellent condition internally and externally, the lining is intact. The chrome-plated blade holders are in mint condition. The outer cardboard box is also in excellent condition.
Hoffritz razors are now very rare indeed. To get one boxed with blade holders in this condition is a real rarity.
Ian Fleming, author of the 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.
