    Default Easternblock Britva

    This is the place for those few but good shavers: soviets, USSR, Russian, Hungarian and all the straight razors from beyond the old iron curtain.

    Trud Vacha model "Gravyura" 1956

    This is my Britva Uzkaya. I'm told that translates to "Narrow Razor". It's a 5/8 and I believe it's made of stainless steel. Good razor!

    Regards - Walt

    Trud from Vacha

    STIZ - Straight Razor Place Wiki

    P.S. I think, the name "Easternblock" is better for this thread.

    One of my Co-workers is recently from Lithuania. If I can remember, I'll get her to read it to me tomorrow.
