A lovely vintage german straight razor in ivory scales. It is marked "Water Wheel" Silver Steel made in Germany but other than this I have no more info. It is in very good condition with very little signs of wear & looks more or less unused.
A great first straight razor for anyone wanting to give straight razors a try.
