    This was a interesting flea market find. A complete C.V.H. SE Razor. Both parts to the handle are in the case and has well as the stropping attachment. The case is a touch tatty on the outside but clean inside. The case it labeled Hoffritz inside and also the one blade. Can not find any info of Hoffritz selling the SE as opposed to them selling C.V. H. straight razors. A nice piece of history mixing the end of the C.V.H. SE razors and the beginning of Hoffritz as a cutlery company

    Thanks all for the kind words. I know of the razors Pedegree and great potential. What I found the most interesting, other than being a complete set from the dirt mall, is it being distributed by Hoffritz. At first I thought it was a marriage, a CVH in the wrong case. Until a returned home and removed the blade from the razor, that is when I saw the logo on it. Than it all came together. I hope it does not make my CVH straight razors jealous
