    Waits Compendium shows 2 razors, 1 for an A & F Co. sterling silver razor made in Germany and 1 for an Abercrombie & Fitch razor also made in Germany. The one on Ebay looks like the A & F Co. razor but seller says it's marked Abercombie & Fitch and says it's marked Mexico. Interestingly, the Abercrombie & Fitch razor, as opposed to the A & F Co. razor, is from the 1930s and has a built in light and takes batteries. So you can get your double edge shave on in the dark I guess.

    This, according to Abercrombie & Fitch...

    In 1892, Abercrombie & Fitch was founded under the name David T. Abercrombie Co. The first store was a small waterfront shop and factory in downtown New York City. His love of the great outdoors inspired him to begin Abercrombie & Co., a shop dedicated to selling only the highest-quality camping, fishing, and hunting gear. One of his most loyal customers was Ezra Fitch.

    Ezra Fitch was a successful lawyer in Kingston, New York. Restless and thoroughly bored with his profession, Fitch spent his free time trekking the slopes of the Adirondacks.

    In 1900, Fitch convinced David Abercrombie to let him buy into partnership in the business. By 1904, the shop, which was now located at 314 Broadway, was incorporated, and the name was officially changed to Abercrombie & Fitch.

    David Abercrombie and Ezra Fitch were stubborn, hot-tempered men, and they had vastly different views about the future of their business. Abercrombie was more conservative and content to continue the store as it was. However, Fitch was more of a visionary. Inevitably, the partnership dissolved, and David Abercrombie resigned in 1907.

    In the meantime, the store continued to expand. Ezra Fitch was a determined innovator ¬- the phrase “It can’t be done” was not a part of his vocabulary.

    In 1913, the store moved again, this time to a more fashionable and easily accessible midtown address just off of 5th Avenue. Inventory was expanded and A&F became the first store in New York to supply rugged outdoor clothing for women.

    In 1917, Abercrombie & Fitch moved again, this time to Madison Avenue and 45th Street, where it occupied an entire 12-story building. The sign outside the new location said, “Where the Blazed Trail Crosses the Boulevard.”

    In 1928, Ezra Fitch retired, but Abercrombie & Fitch continued to grow.

    In May 1996, Abercrombie & Fitch became a fully independent, publicly traded company and thrives as one of the fastest-growing merchants of the highest quality men’s and women’s casual clothing in America.

    (Reuters) - Teen apparel chain Abercrombie & Fitch Co has closed its Hollister store in New York City due to bedbug infestation.

    The store, in Manhattan's SoHo neighborhood, was closed on Wednesday, the company said. It said it was in the process of removing the bedbugs and hoped to reopen the store soon.

    Abercrombie & Fitch spokesman Eric Cerny had no comment on how the store closing could affect sales and profits.

    I'm not surprised they sold razors. They also sold watches back in the 40's and 50's.

    It is a light razor. An elegant razor from a more civilized time. Strictly for Jedi shavers.

    There was also an Abercrombie and Fitch straight razor that pops up on the forums from time to time. I've heard they're decent razors, too. They were also made in Germany.
