That's a beauty.
Whoever the lucky buyer is, you just beat me.
Wow. Missed out too.
Any idea when it was produced? The "Made by Experts in USA, Not made in Germany" suggests a war time date.
Yes the way I understand that stamp is it was roughly used between 1938 and 1946
Two Swedish Framebacks, not sure if you are all aware that there are actually four different styles of "Frameback" razors but these represent two of them
On the left we have a J. Engstrom true "Frame"back I measure it at 6/8
Looks like somebody in the distant past replaced the back scale ..
The edge is in great shape no dings chip or bad spot and has a nice even bevel,
On the right we have a CW Dhalgren I measure at just shy of 6/8
This is a Faux Frameback the blade and tang are one piece of steel and the Spine is Tubular Brass and pressed into place
Again the bevel is clean even and shows no issues
Neither of these is "Shave Ready" to my standards, they do both, however, pass the Bevel set tests
I will offer these two ways
$60 for both plus Shipping as they sit, which should be perfect for a person that hones their own razors or is learning to hone.
I totally believe these can be brought to shave ready pretty easily..
If you are a Non-Honer / Beginner I will sell them Honed & Stropped to a True Shave ready for $80 plus shipping
Post or PM here
Thanks for looking
