    I have a D. Peres razor. I had to rescale it, but in it's time it was a first class razor. Brass lined with MOP scales. The blade, however, is mint and it is an excellent shaver. If I remember correctly somebody on this forum has a seven day set that is similar to mine. I have seen one on ebay that was listed as D. Peres and somebody else that had the country of manufacture listed as France. It is the only time I've ever seen one listed that was not made in Germany and I do not remember if it had the tapped keg hallmark.

    The history of Daniel Perez is very intersting. Actually his company was the first known razor maker in Solingen.
    founded by Daniel Perez in Solingen in 1792.
    His main achievement was to reinvent the "english polish" and whith this knowledge he established the production of scissors as well as pocket knives and razors around 1803-1805. This was against the resistance of the old Solingen Trade Guilds. In 1809 Napoleon who ruled over the Solingen area at that time abolish the Trade Guilds.
    Due to competition and the impact of Napoleons Continental Blockade against Great Britain, Daniel Perez had to cease production in 1819. He sold the machinery to Ignaz Rösler of Austria who used it to build up the Razor Industry in Nixdorf Bohemia.
    The Daniel Perez Company kept on as a trading Company.
    It took until 1878 when the grandchildren of the founder started with the production of razors again.
    The height of the production was between 1890 - 1914 and in the 1920´s.
    A Daniel Perez Company still exist in Solingen today but they don´t produce Razors anymore
