This old straight razor is in very nice condition and it comes with its original box. The handle is vegetable ivory or celluloid molded into a twisted design. On one side the blade reads; Carbo-Magnetic Reg.U.S.Pat. Of. and the shank portion is marked: 60 “Griffon” XX . The shank on the other side has the griffin logo and the blade is marked W.A. Zietzke & Co. It comes in its original box with the slide off lid. One side reads; Carbo-Magnetic with lightning bolts radiating out around it. The other side has W.A.Zietzke & Co. Bozeman, Mont(ana) with an art nouveau design on the lid potion. The box also has metal ends. I believe this is from the early 1900’s.
The razor measures about 6 ¼” in length closed and 9 ½” long opened. It is in very good condition with minimal wear, no chips or cracks in the metal or the celluloid. The box measures about 6 5/8” by 1 1/8” by 1” and is in nice condition with minor wear. The paper cover has some fading and discoloration.
The pictures are not shown at actual size. Please refer to the description for actual measurements.
