    Question Info on Weed & Co? Pics

    Wondering of anyone here knows about their razors. From what I can tell they have distributed razors by Henckels, but I don't know if that is the only razors they sold.
    So far the best info I have is a Henckels IROQUOIS here on SRP and the advertisement below. I have one on the way that has the company name on the tang and Red Jacket on the blade.

    Thanks!

    It seems American-Made. Torrey?

    to the OP, The blade is very similar to those sold by Case, Torrey, and a couple others. For shaving, it is one of my favorite shavers and holds an edge for a long time. The grooves/ fullers at the top make for a very light and quick blade
    and also an ease of honing. Shaves much like a wedge in a light weight package. Good buy at any fair price!
    Enjoy!

    Thanks for the insight. I know they sold a shoulderless Henckels, but it looked different and had their mark on one side of the tang.
    $18 seemed like a good price to me. I expected someone to snipe it but there were no more bids. I'm still surprised what some razors are selling for now compare to a few years ago when I first started collecting. (I know I keep mentioning that in threads!) It will be nice getting a razor that doesn't need a lot of pitting removed!

    I've wanted a shoulderless razor to add to my collection because I liked the design and they're different than what I have so far. I'll see how sharp it is in a few days. If it needs rehoning it may not get used for a while though.

    (Hi, Hirlau! )
    Oh snit man. That's a nice quality razor too eh? Not modern cheap stuff eh. That's a super sweet razor set. Man you have some pretty razors from what I have seen these past few days. Loved that diver over ivory twin set as well. Just stunning razors man.
