    I bought the same Hamburg razor on eBay last year. What do you think if it? I just got mine back from honing by Maggards. I'm new to straight razors.

    I'm a bit curious about the "Hamburg" name. Is it an actual brand name, or is it a type of grind?

    Hamburg is a place. I went there for a gig that had been cancelled . A long way to go for nothing .

    Well sure, as any Beatles fan knows. But it does not say Made in Hamburg. It just says Hamburg Concave on the blade.

    The Hamburg ring . I'm guessing was an industrial area where they ground razors.

    There is or was a **** ring in the UK , I forget now..

    Hamburg on a blade means that is where is was made or where the grinding was done.

    I believe it is both a name of the razor and a city.
