This is a unique opportunity to purchase a Brand New Slater Bros. Venture Straight razor. These razors have come to me direct from the origional manufacturers in an unfinished condition and have been hand finished to give a brand new unused origional razor. They have been fitted with the origional Ivory scales as sold in the 1920's. There are just twelve razors available so these are very rare.
