Good Vogue Straight Razor, Celluloid ScalesRAZORUS.com
There is not much information available about the Good Vogue brand. While the brand had also safety razors and razor blades in the 70s, it suddenly disappeared. We don't know whether they were producing their razors themselves or having them prepared by another manufacturer, but whoever made them did a really good job.
This large Good Vogue Straight Razor, which has a very good typical German quality steel that takes a keen edge is full hollow ground to paper thickness. 13/16” size made from high carbon steel and never used. We cleaned the corrosion stains that formed on the steel without damaging the gold plating as best as we could and kept the original celluloid scales as we quite liked them. If you are looking for an unused, large German straight razor with quality steel at an affordable price do not miss this.
Straight Razor Care Instructions
Unlike any other shaving tools, straight razors require special care. The cutting edge must be protected from impacts and contact with any hard surface. After each shave you must clean and dry your straight razor with a soft paper towel without touching the very edge and strop it to keep it sharp. You can strop on the canvas side of your strop to clean the cutting edge after each shave. Please do not try to sharpen your straight razor by yourself if you don’t have adequate honing experience, otherwise you can cause irreparable damage. You may consult our straight razor honing service. If you won’t be using your straight razor for a long time, it’s best to cover it with a thin coat of oil to keep it rust free. This is especially important for straight razors with carbon steels, as carbon steel is very prone to rust in humid conditions. Keep your straight razor in a dry place and out of children’s reach.
CAUTION: Straight razors are serious tools for experienced users who know their faces, skins, whisker types and how to lather well. They can cause serious accidents and injuries in the hands of people without enough experience. If you’re enthusiastic about traditional wet shaving but don’t have the experience needed for using a straight razor, then we recommend checking out our double edge safety razors first.
