This is a great example of an early German straight razor. It is a Spear No. 6, made in Germany and sold by Allentown Barber Supply Company in Allentown, PA.

The blade is quite sharp and has no visible chips. The one side has some surface rust on the back edge (see pic 2). The handle is a nice yellow with spear tips bearing the company name adorning each ends.

The Spear logo and "No. 6" are stamped on one side of the blade, the other side reads

Allentown B. S. CO.
Allentown, PA
Made In Germany

The box is in really good shape, solid sides all around and both ends are sealed. The outside is marked with the same information as is stamped on the blade. If you open the box, you can read a little disclaimer printed inside "This razor is sharp and ready for shaving. It has been thoroughly inspected and found to be in perfect condition. Broken or misused razors will not be replaced."

Size: 6" overall with a blade that is 3" long and 5/8" high.
