MADE IN GERMANY - Chrome plated traditional safety razor. This custom Double Edge Safety Razor (aka DE Blade, or Safety Razor), is presented with serious wet shavers in mind. The safety razor was first introduced in the late 18th century as an alternative (and safer) to a cut throat blade. DE blades are commonly known as the blade your father or grandfather used to use. Today, classic style wet shaving is making a resurgence. The blade is packaged in matte black gift box, accompanied with a 5 pack of starter blades, and an instructional card.
