    It will be a razor made in Germany for a retailer. Usually, they are good quality.

    I have no idea, but it was common for german made straight razors to be re-branded by hardware stores and other vendors for advertising. This also was/is done commonly with fly swatters, rulers, ash trays, and other things.

    Take good photos and sell it here or on ebay.

    Do you have any interest in trying it out for shaving?

    Bey-Attrash is an Arabic last name or clan name roughly translated to deaf chieftan.
    Probably either a Turkish name or a marketing gimmick to make it sound exotic.
    Shepley is a common English last name and there are a lot of Shepleys in the New York area.
    Shepley could have been anything from a hotel to a fine men's clothing store to a hardware store. Hard to say.
    Most of those rebranded blades are good shavers.
