    Default Dates of Manufacture

    Does anyone know the (approximate) dates the various manufacturers made their razors? Such as from when to when were DD, Dorko, Puma, etc. making razors?

    Thanks. That is exactly what I was looking for... something cool about knowing a blade is 50, 100+ years old, and still shaves well.

    That website and the Standard Guide to Razors 3rd edition combined give a great insight to how old they are...
    You can snag the guide pretty cheap on the Bay or Amazon

    It means that Uniclectica is not complete!

    Your razor was made between 1900 and 1930!

    Where did you find this information??? I would like access to this information as well. I have the Standard guide to Razors, 3rd edition, but it is missing a lot of dates.

    Thanks

    Sorry to revive an old thread but this seems to be the place to ask. Does anyone have any info on berger glose and co? I know they were involved in a lawsuit in 1916 and that they dropped the "and co" sometime prior to that but i cant find when they dropped it and when they were founded.
