    You could probably tell us more then most when it comes to the difference between 1st and 2nd generation that is where my knowledge becomes a little blurry

    But what I understand is 1st generation is pre WW2 and 2nd generation is post WW2 up until they stopped production
    3rd Generation were the "Blanks" 3.5 was the Single Man and 4th Generation is the new production...

    Perhaps your books show more ???

    Never did any research on Friodur, the books I have are not helpful for German razors.

    Certainly the ones with the 'scalloped' spines are of the 3rd gen?

    It seems like the original patent was in 1939.

    Interesting that the German Trademark and Patent office doesn't have a listing before 1951, and they always seems to include the original date of application and for Friodur its 1951?

    Perhaps different dates for Knives VS Razors ????

    I expect the records perished in the bombing of WWII? The numbering system of the things is confusing as well.

    Here is a nice 472 which had the brown-stained scales out of Japan.
    Matt did me a bang-up job with 3 super-thin layers of black, aluminum, and wood using Tuzi's hand-made collars.
    It's waiting for the hones right now!

    The spine on that 472 is pretty nifty.

    I am now in possession of Glen's re-scale, which was the original subject of this thread. Needless to say, it is just as beautiful as the posted pictures, if not more so because it is in my hand. Before sending it off for rescaling I had a fine Coticule edge going. No doubt Glen had to dull the edge for safety. I got in today from my last load with the shipment waiting for me. In consultation with Glen, I got busy honing on the Shapton Glass series going all the way out to 30K. Primary reason: the hardness of this steel is suitable to take and hold such a fine edge. Well, I must have done one fine honing job because I got one of the best, crispest shaves I've ever had.

    BTW, the scales are beautiful, the craftsmanship exquisite. The razor is a delight to hold in my hand.
