Here for sale is a great vintage cut throat razor and sharpening strop. The razor is made by Giesen & Forsthoff of Germany. It comes complete with its original box marked with the TIMOR brand. The lovely razor has a rare gilt band etched to the blade. 

Together with the razor is a lovely vintage leather strop for sharpening the razor. This vintage grooming collection would make a wonderful gift for any man or great for a bathroom shelf display. John Player tin is available in a separate listing. 


Both are untested and are vintage. The cases of both are worn, the strop has a tear to the case. Shows signs of wear and tear as it is old and has been used, but only adds to its character. Great decorative item which would look fantastic in any home or business interior.

Please look at photos closely as they form part of the item description.
