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.
Please note that the photos were taken after the blade was honed
