JA Henckles  ~ Solingen Germany 1917 - 1954+

This Straight razor was forged in Solingen and is 5/8" by 3" and is shave ready.

Condition:

The metal is in nice shape and it has lower jimps. The scales are straight and the blade movement is smooth. The scales have a rougher feel towards the pivot pin and smoother at the other end. I don't know why other than maybe lots of use over the years. 

Weight: 36g
Point: Square
Grind: Hollow
Blade Width: 5/8"
Blade Length: 3"

Markings:
"Platinum" Carbon Steel Blade with Twins Logo on the Tang on one side, with JA Henckles. Twin Works SOLINGEN GERMANY on the other. #401

Model Number: 401
1920's....is a best guess

History: 

ZWILLING J.A. HENCKELS  ~ Solingen Germany

JA Henckles Trademarks

The history of the ZWILLING J.A. HENCKELS brand starts on June 13, 1731 (under the Gemini star sign). It was on that day that knife-maker Peter Henckels from Solingen registered the "Twin" symbol as his trademark with the Cutlers’ Guild of Solingen. This symbol which is now well-known globally, is thus one of the oldest trademarks in the world. Today’s name – ZWILLING J.A. HENCKELS - was given to the Company by a descendant of Peter Henckels, Johann Abraham Henckels.

History of Solingen.

Solingen craftsmen made swords and daggers in the Middle Ages and are now better known for knives, razors and cutlery. There is evidence that the Cutlery industry existed from the beginning of the 14th Century. According to tradition, workers from Damascus, the ancient home of fine blade weapons, settled there about the middle of the twelfth century.

Known as the "City of Blades" Solingen is also a city of rivers, providing early hydro-powered factory tooling to achieve exceptional levels of uniformity and quantity unmatched in world of cutlery. Only blades forged from Steel in Solingen could bare the SOLINGEN name.

The most important producing centres in England and Germany were Sheffield and Solingen respectively. The historic centres of French production are Thiers, Nogent and Chatellerault. In the United States the cutlery industry was centred largely in New England and New York where English and German immigrant cutlers first began production.
