SFI Wapienica NOS Straight Razor - 5/8 Quarter Hollow Blade, Stainless Steel Scales - GSG Certified and Shave Ready
It's not very common to find these Polish-made SFK razors in NOS condition any more, and we've acquired a good quantity. From our estimation, these likely date from somewhere in the 1950s-1970s time period and were made for medical or military use (pre-surgical shaving, barbers use etc.) in Eastern Bloc countries. Each very high quality razor has a 5/8-11/16 width, quarter hollow grind carbon steel blade (the best Swedish Steel I am told) housed in nicely made stainless steel scales which are not too heavy and balance nicely.
What does Griffith Shaving Goods Certified and Shave Ready mean?
Each razor has been carefully opened, thick factory preserving grease removed, minor stains or spots in the steel were carefully cleaned off, scales tightened and blades centered and finally each razor's edge hand honed, inspected and stropped to ensure an excellent shave right out of the box. When purchasing sealed NOS razors there is often the chance that you may open the box to a rusted or otherwise damaged razor, by purchasing a GSG certified razor all of that risk is removed.
NOTE: ALL of these razors are essentially identical, so individual choice of razor is not possible (or needed). They came packed inside several different color plastic boxes, with plastic bag or cellophane and paper wrap packaging. If you have a preference in box color, indicate your choice to us and we will try to accommodate your request however we cannot guarantee availability of all colors.
