CLAUSS BLUE STEEL STRAIGHT RAZOR
RICHARDS RAZORS;  MAKE ME AN OFFER I CAN'T REFUSE!  

  What you're looking at is a Clauss Blue Steel straight razor, made for
the Union Barber Supply Company in Baltimore Maryland.  The scales are in
excellent condition showing no cracks, chips or ware.  As you can see in the 
pictures this great collectible was made for the Union Barber's Supply company
in the late 1800s.  The razors' tang has jimps on one side only and are  
in very good clean condition.  The blade is 3" in length and 4/8" wide the 
entire length including the handle is 9 1/2".  The blade itself shines as if 
new with one very small blemish close to the end of one side of the blade, 
pouring which I believe can be buffed out.  Other than that the razor is in excellent 
condition.  Also included is the box that came in, the writing is still 
legible even though the box is some vintage ware.

When I describe an object as 'VINTAGE' or 'ANTIQUE' they will have the typical wear and tear you 
would expect with an older piece. Light scratches, scuffing & crazing and such like would be 
expected as opposed to a NEW condition. If an item is in MINT condition I will say so. If an item 
has any major issues - dents, deep marks, stains or heavy scratches etc. I will bring these to your
attention in my description.  All sales final.


History:
  Clauss Shear, founded in 1877 by John and Henrie Clauss, of German origin, 
in Elyria, Ohio, moved the company to Fremont ten years later. Schaaf, 
perhaps the owner of Schaaf's Good Cutlery, and Harry Zimmerman bought out 
the interests of their three Henkel Company partners, Dr. George Zimmerman, 
August Henkel, and Frank Kiser. The five men had founded Henkel in 1906. In 
1919, Henkel Company merged with Clauss Shear to become the largest cutlery 
company in the world. 

  In 1954 the corporate name was changed to Clauss Cutlery Company to 
eliminate the confusion with the German cutlery firm J.A. Henckels.
In 1967 Clauss was taken over by Alco Standard Corporation.
In May 2004, Acme United Corporation acquired the Clauss inventory, 
trademarks and brand names for approximately $500,000.
