Wacker Solingen - Historic Straight Razor No. 40-5/8 Original Schulze with Plastic Scales
We are pleased to be able to offer some very special razors which have been brought out of the archives by Johannes Wacker, current maker of the renowned Wacker straight razors. Among them are one of a kind, rare, NOS, and limited edition models which you will rarely, if ever, find available for sale. Some razors are Wacker models from years past or razors of other brands ground from old blanks or originally ground 50-60 years ago by Johannes' father or grandfather.
Wacker Rassiermesser in Solingen Germany manufactures some of the most attractive and well-crafted hand made razors currently available. Using traditional materials and methods, they create straight razors of supreme performance and looks that are like works of art.

Every razor has been made shave ready by Wacker, but if you’d like us to hone the razor for no additional charge upon purchase to guarantee a great shave, leave us a note at checkout. Please allow an extra 2-3 business days before shipment for this service. Note that Matt will usually hone any razor with tape on the spine, so if you’d like a razor honed without tape please make us aware.
