A LOVELY VINTAGE KISMET 5/8" HOLLOW GROUND STRAIGHT RAZOR WITH WHITE SCALES.
This is a lovely simple razor in very good condition with some faint water marks on the blade around the Kismet engraving ( see pic ). This would make a lovely starter razor which will need very little looking after being a stainless blade.
The blade has been cleaned, polished & honed ( see below ) It has been sterilized and then coated with Fredricssons Razor Oil. Fully restored and shave ready ( see note below ).
