Craftsman straight razors?
I was looking at purchasing a craftsman straight razor, and was wondering about the quality of the blade, did craftsman make them or if not what company did? I know craftsman used to make very good quality products, just debating on wether to pull the trigger on this one. Thanks for looking and giving your opinions.

I have one very similar along with the matching Strop
From my research on them it seems that this one was made by Kohler (sp*) some of the others seem to be made by ERN
I can tell you that the "Chromized" blades are exceptional, especially if you like Wicked Sharp Synthetic edges, that steel will hold them

Thanks for the inspiration for an afternoon shave. My blade doesn't say "Chromized" but has a wonderful edge. Yours looks like a beauty.

Koeller made some, Ern also, but I like the Koeller best. I have one where the box is marked 'Kayser-Ellison Steel, which is a Koeller made pre WWII Craftsman 'Sta-Sharp. First class razors. The oddest thing about them, even though they were made in Solingen, the blade doesn't say that anywhere. Just the Sears-Roebuck marking.

Well damn I was outbid at the last second. That's the one part of eBay that just sucks. But oh well, now what will bother me is if the person who bought it did it just to try and turn a profit, and not actually use it.

Better to do a forum search for stuff like that if you're looking at an active auction. Plenty of info on those razors, and most brands, already been discussed more than once.

Just got off a 12 hour shift... I saw "Craftsman Razor" and I though, I didn't know Sears made straight razors! Time for bed I think!
