Regular price £100.00 Sale

A restored Kropp, a fine English hollow ground blade which is 11/16" wide.

 

It's a superb shaving razor, made of excellent Sheffield steel.

The scales and spacer are the beautiful originals, made of an early plastic, now polished to a high sheen. The spacer is made of lead, which I have re-shaped. A lead spacer guarantees a balanced razor in the hand.  

 

 

  

Kropp razors are also excellent first straight razors - they shave excellently and feel solid and dependable.  They give no shocks and no surprises.

 

Probably made before WW2, this is a razor with a fine pedigree.  Kropp razors are excellent razors, and were very popular.

I have owned scores of Kropp razors and honed hundreds of them. I have never encountered a bad Kropp razor.
