    Hi - bought this as it was advertised as a razor blade travel strop but not sure - the bit that pops out when you press the two sides together does look and feel like a strop. It wasn't expensive, I'm just curious.Name:  DSCF5474.jpg

    I am stumped. Hopefully someone will come along with more knowledge.

    I have never seen anything like that.
    The numbers on the side might be your only means of tracking it down.

    The closest I can come up with is a match safe.

    My guess would be that it's for safety razor blades, stored in the compartment and "stropped" on the rib at the top of the opening.

    Your right, Tim. A match box from the time of Nazi Germany.

    Thank you - I wondered about matches but it's so tiny, I thought match safes were normally much bigger? Perhaps used by military so smaller for carrying? Wow that's brilliant! Cool piece of history
