11/16+ F.W. Engels 'Warren Velvet Edge' - New York

I am selling several razors from a straightrazor user and collector located in the USA
This is a vintage F.W. Engels from the early 90's in practically unused condition. Looks to be NOS.

This razor is in excellent all around condition as is the bluing. Razors closes and centers nicely.

I don't see any rust, blemishes or wear and tear at the pivot which definitely tells me the razor has never been used or hasn't seen much use at all if any.
11/16+  (.720"), spike point, full hollow.

The point is spiked and I can easily round/mute it at buyers request.

Engelswerk F.W. Engels, Friedrich Wilhelm Engels, 1909 - 1943. Located at 379 Broome St., New York City. They imported all types of cutlery from the Solingen firm which was located in Solingen-Foche.


Engelswerk C.W. Engels, 1892 - 1943, Solingen-Foche. The factory was engaged in the manufacturing of straight razors, pocket knives, scissors and other  types of cutlery.


Between 1909 and 1943, Friedrich Wilhelm Engels’s company on Broome Street, New York City, sold several models of excellent quality straight razors from the main company located and manufactured in Solingen-Foche, Germany. These straight razors, sold under the brand of F.W. Engels, were manufactured using Argo steel, some of the toughest and most durable steel ever used in the production of shaving blades known for their ability to take and hold an edge for a considerable length of time. 

The razor is not shave ready however I can hone the razor at no extra charge or leave as is. Just leave a note in the special instruction text box when checking out. t.
