During WWII metal production was pretty much dedicated to war materials.
Civilian goods which were traditionally metallic, such as razors, were made with alternate materials.
One of the best of these alternate materials was "bakelite" resin. The red and black grain was beautiful and the material was durable.
This Merkur is "faux" bakelite and is a very cool looking razor. It also delivers an awesome, close, smooth and comfortable shave.
This 3 piece razor is 3 1/4 " long & weighs 0.5 oz (15 grams).
Packaged in a plastic travel case with one Merkur blade.
Made in Solingen, Germany
