Otto Fromm 50 Redhead Solingen Full Hollow 8/8th (Freshly Honed)
Fitchard Pure Badger
Le Pere Lucien Savon du Barbier Soap
Humphreys Witch Hazel

I Just had a Wonderful Shave with My NOS Otto Fromm 50 Redhead Solingen Barbers Notch that Arrived this Morning from Germany..Its a Full 8/8th Not Including the Spine..Its a Huge Heavy Weighted Blade for a Full Hollow..Its a Rare Big Chopper that Came Shave Ready & Finished on a 20k Suehiro Gokumyo Stone..
;)


The Seller Didn't Advertise it as NOS Due to Fact that it had Been Honed..But I Contacted Him & he Confirmed it was Factory Fresh when he Honed it..He has Put a Superb Edge on it..I Like the Smooth Edge..I Didn't Find it that Much Different to a 12 K Super Stone..Beautiful Close Shaver Mind..I Am Still Gobsmacked at the Nick of this Razor..Its Certainly the Pride of My Collection..Wunderbar..
