    Default Henckles DE?

    I searched the entire DE forum. but could not find any mention of a Henckles DE razor.
    The really sweet SE, sure, but not a DE.

    Did Henckles make one of those? Because I'm pretty sure I saw one in an antique store display case.

    I didnt have time to stop and check it out, but If somebody says the thing exists and is rare and valuable, I will make a return trip. =)

    By SE do you mean single edge safety razor? I have yet to see anything like that from Henckles. I used to use GEM SE razors all the time and they were great.

    Default Henckles DE?

    Hello, Magpie:

    To my knowledge, Henckles did not make a double edge razor. Let me qualify that: I have never seen one.

    Regards,

    That's a single edge safety razor much like the old gem lather catchers, those shave great too. Very old types only took wedge blades, no longer made, that had to be honed and stropped.

    I saw one of these go on B&B recently, if this is what you meant.

    Not an exact match, but the fact that they exist at all gives me hope.

    I will go back and take a closer look see. Any idea what a NIB would be worth? (cause thats what it looked like in my quick pass by)

    I thought price quotes are generally frowned upon on this forum, but honestly I'm not sure.

    I'm not too worried about a price quote. If it seems like a bargin, and it IS what it looked like, I will try and weedle it out of the store and into my collection. Yea, that collection, the one I need to sell down because i keep buying things I cant afford!
