    Default Friedmann & Lauterjung

    Really starting to lean towards U.S. Steel Razors, seems like they hold an edge better than my Solingens & Sheffields and have a scary sharpness yet a buttery smoothness to them. Picked this up today and it has some red looking surface rust in a few spots that I'm quite sure will clean up nicely though. Anyone shave with one of these guys ? The scales are bone so I may have my work cut out getting them to look decent. Anyway I'm happy to get me some more U.S. Steel !!!

    I have a Lauterjung "TIGER" which is nowhere near as old as the one you have pictured in your post. It shaves well enough but my guess is there is some difference in the composition of the steel between your older one and my newer one.

    Hone yours up and let us know what the shave is like.

    Here more Infos

    The PUMA Chronicle
    Puma-Werk Lauterjung & Sohn GmbH & Co. KG

    1769
    Johann Wilhelm Lauterjung writes down his trademark in the knife makers role of Solingen - the PUMA history started.
    1855
    His great-grandchild Nathanael (1815-1865) moved the production to the nearby city of Solingen
    1876
    His son, Ernst Otto Lauterjung (1855-1931) for the first time also manufactures pocket-knives, stilettos, sabers and hunting knives in an additional small factory.
    1900
    On May 26th the name "PUMA-Werk, Lauterjung und Sohn" is written down on the Solingen register of companies.
    1920
    The sons Eugen (1883-1961) and Franz (1888-1976) build a second plant in Solingen and push the export. So PUMA got known internationally before the II. World War.
    1936-1945
    During the second World War the production is put under the authority of the war industry.
    1946
    Return to the civilian production of pocket- and household knives.
    1953
    Oswald von Frankenberg and Ludwigsdorf (1915-1986), husband of Renate Lauterjung, changes the produktion on functional hunting-, fishing-, outdoor- and sporting knives. In cooperation with top forestray commissioner Walte Frevert, a numerous PUMA classics are developed (Waidbesteck, Jagdnicker, Waidmesser, universal hunting knife and hog spear). The bloodhound leader Tassius designs the Rüdemann and the Wildtöte.
    1956
    PUMA develops the model White Hunter for the East african hunting organization.
    1965
    PUMA introduces the number system. Every model gets an examining number of its own, incl. guarantee exercise book, with production year.
    1967
    Renate von Frankenberg takes over the management in the PUMA-Werk.
    1986
    Oswald von Frankenberg and Ludwigsdorf dies and leaves an economically highly profitable and internationally recognized enterprise behind.
    1991
    Sale of PUMA-Werk to the Solinger family Hindrichs.
    1995
    Harald Lauer, already active in the enterprise since the end of the seventies, becomes Managing director of PUMA-Werk. Under his management new production methods are forced, e.g. CNC controllers and laser technology.
    1998
    Sale to businessman Heiner Hiepass-Aryus and removal to the modern industrial area "Aufderhöhe".
    2003
    Next to the classic line PUMA offers its customers a series of very qualitative knives in traditional design under the label "PUMA IP" ( PUMA International Production).
    2008
    With "Puma TEC" the company completes its knife program with economically attractive, fixed blade and folding knives in a modern look."

    Awesome article Fynn ! This one here looks just like the one I've got coming. I wonder if that one had the etching on its blade at one time ? I hope mine cleans up pretty close to that one, that one is a beautiful razor there ! Both are very nice. Thanks Fynn,

    Mark

    Just looked back to compare again and noticed single shoulder on mine and double on yours, must mean a difference in years ?

    Nice old razor, but Friedman & Lauterjung was a New York importing firm, with no connection to Lauterjung & Sohn of Solingen, unless I am greatly mistaken. I am going by the entries in Goins' for F. Lauterjung (1813 to present)-vs. Lauterjung & Sohn. (1769-present) Manah or any other historians?

    This is the site I got some info on
    Straight Razor Manufacturers and Dates of Operation and this is what it says as far as the name on razor.

    I am in hopes of American Steel on this blade, that is one of the reasons I bought it. If not I still really like the style of the blade, and the etching on it. And if I can sand and buff n polish out the scales that would be great, if not I may try to make my own first set of scales. With that info given, wouldn't you guys think it is U.S. steel ? Either way I think its gonna be a sweet razor ! Thanks for all the comments guys !!!
