This is an old Rolls Razor kit. The model is nowhere to be found on the presentation case or any of the pieces. The nickel plated case houses the Rolls razor head, handle, honing stone, strop and mechanism for sharpening the wedge blade. The blade is marked; Best Sheffield Steel on one side and Rolls Razor on the other side along with some patent numbers. The outside of the case has a Greek key design. One side has a list of patent numbers and reads; Rolls Razor Made in England. On the other side is the company trade mark; The Whetter. One of the removable panels has a stropping surface to be used after every shave. The other removable panel has a honing stone for sharpening the blade when needed. The entire unit comes complete with its original hinged presentation box which is lined with royal blue velvet on the bottom and satin like fabric inside the lid. An original instruction pamphlet is also included.
The nickel case measures about 6” by 2 ¾” by ¾” and is in very good condition with minimal wear and no damage. It appears to have been used very little. The stone is intact, not chipped or broken and still has the original “Made in England” stamped on it. The strop also has minimal wear. The blade and all other metal parts are clean with no rust or pitting and minimal discoloration. The presentation box measures about 6 ¾” by 3 ¾” by 1” and is in nice condition with light wear. The informatve instruction booklet has some minor edge and corner wear and soiling and the protective paper cover it creased and torn.
