A BEAUTIFUL VINTAGE KRAUS "HOLLOW GROUND" STRAIGHT RAZOR WITH MEXICAN COCOBOLO WOOD SCALES. A lovely 5/8" Hollow Ground razor, I bought this a while ago with damaged scales in need of restoration. The blade has been cleaned, polished & honed ( see below ) and I have made new scales from Mexican Cocobolo hardwood. It has had new pins & bushes & the scales have been polished & wax treated blade. It has been sterilized and then coated with Fredricssons Razor Oil.
