Original case


This is a Be-Be brand razor blade sharpener, complete with original case. Today a razor gets thrown away when the blade has become blunted, when this was made men would resharpen used blades, sometimes getting over 100 shaves from a blade.

On one side plate it says "Be-Be Strop, Patent" and on the other it says "Made in Germany". Very well made in chromed steel it is designed to sharpen both sides of the blade by turning the blade over as part of the sharpening process. There is nothing to indicate an age but it could be 1920's or 30's but possibly even older. The original case has a satin lined lid with Be-Be Trade mark.

Generally very good condition. There is some wear to the case but it is not unduly worn given the age. Would benefit from a good polish but as usual I have left it virtually as found so that the buyer can get a feel for the age. Note blade not included for safety.

Price 30.00. SOLD
Postage & packing for UK 2.50.
