Giesen & Forsthoff Straight Razort- Horn Handle/Scales by Vintage Gentlemen

SKU: carro-5974232


Product Description

Fulfilled by our friends at Vintage Gentlemen

This is a classic and luxurious straight razor from German Giesen & Forsthoff with 5/8 inch carbon steel blade and handle of real horn and the text "De Luxe" etched in to the blade.

Hollow ground

The straight razor is "shave ready" when it comes to you, you do not need to strop the blade before using the razor for the first time, but is recommended as you use it multiple times. The blade is made of carbon steel, which makes it easier for you to get a sharp focus at stropping / grinding than if the blade were made ​​of stainless steel. You simply get a sharper edge. It also means that you must be careful to wipe the blade after use and store the knife dry to prevent rust.

Giesen & Forsthoff has been making razors for over 100 years. In 1923 Paul Giesen and Eugen Forsthoff moved the production to Baumstrasse in the heart of Solingen steel districts. They are still seated here today. And with 100 years of experience under the belt, combined with German quality and German steel, we dare say that Giesen & Forsthoff is one of Europe's foremost manufacturer of razors.


  • 6 3/8" closed. 4" carbon steel blade etched "Deluxe". 5/8" wide. Horn handles. Velvet lined cardboard gift box.

    Flat Caps Sizing

    Poe and Company Flat Caps have their origins in Great Britain. We are proud to offer them by the centimeter in order to give our customers the closest to a custom fit available in a standard size. Many companies will only offer standard Small - XXX-Large. In doing so, they are able to limit their stock and manufacturing costs passing the off-sizes off to the customer. We want you to love the fit!

    We also offer "Harris Tweed Flat Caps from our Friends at Glencroft." You can note a Glencroft Harris Tweed in the Flat Cap descriptions. They generally run 1cm smaller so if you measure as a 59 cm by measuring tape, please order a 58 cm Harris Tweed. 

    Ladies and Childrens Flat Caps are one-size fits all. Both have an elastic back to accommodate ladies hair styles and growing children.
