It looks like a brass punch with red inlays and a TRAC II head.

There are many makers who replicated the Trac II handle after the patents expired. Many shave better than the original.

First off welcome back and hope you are feeling better. That is beautiful and different looking. Like was just mentioned there are many generic makers of the Trac11 type handle. Omega makes many different handles including wood.

Yes, I have the set. Mine came with a matching brass stand that contained a matching boar brush. The brush also had the red inlay.

My set has no markings on who the maker was so I'm as lost as you on that.

Not too creative, must be an old design from overseas.

Like I said, it looks like a metal punch made out of brass with the shaft bent and rails soldered on. Clean and simple though.
