I bought this about a year ago as NOS. It has been honed and used about a half dozen times. It is 'shave ready'. This razor is in excellent shape with no stains or blemishes. The 6/8 blade centers a nice pair of celluloid scales with unique bolsters and 'Olympic' inlaid in the scales. The C. Freider Schmidt Soligen blade rests snugly in a three pinned set of scales. This like new razor is reduced to $110 shipped CONUS.
