    After some time this came in the mail.
    It took some back and forth, but there it was, Made in Germany.

    Cleaned it up and shaved with it a few times. It seemed to be slightly top heavy for my tastes, and wanting a small travle razor I hunted for a solution.

    Using a lighter base plate made of aluminium, this made it much better.
    From a Soluna razor.

    This is what became of it all.
    The nice part of this combonation is is shaves very nice and the handle nests inside for more space savings. So I now have a very nice small travle razor. Loaded with Feater blades, it has given me 3 wonderfully close, issue free and smooth shaves.
    Now to clean up the box and I'm ready to go.

    Got one marked Germany as well. Great shaver! Super efficient. Also have a Gillette branded one that I got as part of the 2019 travel box.

    Mine is just an old peice of junk brought back to life. Sad they don't make things like this any more. I would love to have one made of aluminium, it would be very light just like I like.

    Thanks. Mine was found without a case. I think it is post WWII. It is marked with a FP or PF on the bottom plate.

    I have 3 or 4 of these. Mixes German and US. They all shave nice just the way they were made. I am pretty sure I did a video with one.
