This razor has two pins, covered shank, covered tang upper and lower jimps. The metal is in nice shape but has some minor staining. The scales are in good shape. The blade moves smoothly and closes centred but would be great a nice sharpening to be complete. I’m selling as it is.
Blade Width: 11/16"
Blade Length: 3"
Fried. Herder Abr. Logo on the blade and a black plain handle.
