    Don't know if that helps or not. There is a name on the box but you know how that goes. Maybe it's original, maybe it's not

    You could try wading through this https://www.archivingindustry.com/cu...azormakers.htm to see which maker used the brand name Garantie.

    Thanks for your input guys.
    This one only says Garantie. Probably some other not so famous manufacturer or something along those lines I would guess.
    It shaves very well regardless.

    I'd say it is a dead certainty that it is a German made razor being marked Solingen much the same way a blade marked Sheffield is made in England.

    Thanks for the comment, it seems this thread isn't notifying me of responses, saw this late.
