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.
