Manufacturer: Shumate Razor Co.
Origin: St. Louis, Missouri
Blade: High Carbon Steel, Full hollow, 5/8, Round Point
Date of production: 1900-1932
*Free Re-Honing Certificate Included with purchase

This is a 5/8, round point, Shumate Straight razor, made in St. Louis Missouri, with green pearlized celluloid scales.

A nice hollow ground with some light restoration makes this a great everyday shaver for the beginner. A smooth keen edge that's nice and easy to maintain - and the round point makes it much more user friendly for the beginner.

With proper care, this high-carbon, hollow ground, steel blade will last a lifetime.

This blade comes professionally honed, polished, and cleaned. I've honed this blade up to a 12,000 grit stone, having passed the high-standard shave test. After the shave test, the blade is washed with soap and warm water, bathed in disinfecting Barbacide, and bathed in 90% isopropyl alcohol. To prevent rust, it is thinly coated in antibacterial paraffin.

My goal is to get folks settled in a straight razor shaving. If you're not 100% happy with the razor just send me a message.

Also included is a shaving guide to give storage/care tips, and shaving advice.
