Everything about this is weird. It's a cage guard which is a design I equate with french makers, but it isn't like a french razor in shaving character. It's extremely mild. It's unbranded. It's brass (the head is anyway, idk about the handle for sure), and the cap is sort of designed to lock into the base with tension grabbing onto the thin posts, spreading them out and securing the blade. There is no play in the blade which is impressive considering how prone to distortion cage guards are in general. Curious if someone has an example in the box.
