A Puma No.1938 full hollow 5/8 this came my way via a little trade off, he said he pick this up sealed NOS even though it's now been honed so you can't really say it's NOS anymore but still a pretty nice deal.

Thanks Celestino, I do have a kind of knack for sniffing out a vintage NOS razor, in the same way a well trained truffle hound finds those delicious truffles.Biggrin

Very nice. Full information on the label and all. I like the rubber grip.

I will give the razor a shave and I may just put it away and use it in a trade for the right Japanese razor if one comes up, as I know these Puma No.1938 are very hard to get hold of.

Well Johnny they usually start from a e-mail enquiry, regarding honing or restoration, that's how I've come by quite a few razors I traded a little 4/8 plus some cash for the Puma as I knew this razor would add weight to any future trades.
