    Default This makes me wonder

    Name:  J A HANCKELS.jpg
Views: 210
Size:  42.2 KB Surfing the bay i noticed this one. J A Hanckels. It has one stick man (I want call it a dancing man) but with the logo and symbol this awful close to the Henckels that We love. I wonder if it's a stamping mistake or a real company of the time. The bay no. is 252473668832. If anyone looks at it ck. out the logo and name. I may have hit the wrong key. it may really be Banckel.

    Just someone wanting to rip off the real outfit hoping you'll buy it thinking it's the real thing.

    We are going to pick on this razor because it has only one lonely man who is vertically challenged, can't write clearly and on top of that, call him a fraud!
    What has this forum come to,,,,,,,,,

    Yes, John.
    Perhaps you may prefer the previous conversation topic?

    Interesting razor. Has all the old razor tarnish and look. Do I see 'Ranckels'??

    Yes! Sage advise!


    One reason why I rarely surf the bay anymore.

    All I can find to pique my interest is strange things such as this!

    Seems we have not seen it all here!
