    Hello, everyone. New to this forum, but not to SR shaving. Last year I bought this razor on eBay and since then I've been looking for info on it but haven't had any luck. Any help is appreciated.

    Never heard of this make. The photos are a little blurry, but what I see is:
    Silver Steel.

    Does it say Solingen on one side and Sheffield on the other?

    Finest Sheffield silver steel, I think.

    Right. It's Koluko, Solingen with the number 107 on the front of the tang and Finest Sheffield Silver Steel on the back. It's a 7/8th" blade with jimps on both top and bottom of the tang. Very nice razor, full hollowed singing blade, which holds an edge for quite a long time, a high-quality razor, which gives an excellent shave. It's become one of my favorites. Just wish I could find out more about it.

    Sometimes I think everybody in Germany made razors.

    It seems as though there were a lot of contract razor manufacturers in Solingen. I have a Phil Eisemann's Tip Top razor from Lancaster, PA that is stamped "Made in Germany" among many others that I have.
