    What you have there is the Klingon Negh'Var straight razor . The scales are make of an impalpable translucent G20 Super-polymer. The blade is an advanced magnesium alloy. Manufactured around 2285.

    There are actually several out there to be found, in antiques stores & flea markets; they are just hard to spot. Great shavers though,,,


    ,,,give us some photos of your razor & we will gladly help you out.

    In your reply box, there is an option on the second row that says "insert image" when your cursor goes over it. Click on it,,, use the "from computer" option,,,,it will go to your computer,,, find the file on your computer,,, then upload it.

    Bear888, save a photo (jpeg) onto your computer, then the forum software will bring it here & place it for you.

    Bear888 welcome to the forum. I dont have any info on your razor as far as manufacturing, I would guess its around 1860's. It has horn scales (handles) and is a near wedge blade. Guessing around 3/4 blade width.
    If you're curious about that measure from the top of the spine to the cutting edge and this will give you blade width just be careful of your fingers in case it is sharp. Scales appear to be broke at the wedge end but sure looks like it would clean up nicely. Hope this helpsbin some way.
    Nothing is fool proof, to a sufficiently talented fool...
