Gentlemen,

Mann & Federlein was one of the legendary Solingen straight razor manufacturers. The hallmark of its production line was the Mannos Sahara. The one pictured here is a 6/8 full hollow round point with the original scales.

The razor is in superb condition, except for the missing decal on the handle. It had partly peeled off, so I removed it completely. Also, there are a few water marks on the blade, which is a given around my house, since Satan swims in my water.

The razor took a glorious edge from the start. It's a fabulous shaver with a stereophonic audio feedback, and it is shave ready. I would not have sold it, but the money needs to go toward the Obie Yadgar book publishing fund.

The razor is rare. You, therefore, not only will have a magnificent shaver and a handsome razor, but also a collector's item.

The price is $150 shipped U.S. Overseas is extra. Paypal is fine. No e-checks or trades, please. Thanks.

Beautiful razor Obie.. GLWTS.

The thumb notch and tapererd shank as it nears the stabilizer are both almost erotic.

Stunning razor!

The notch and shank look like a beefed up version of the Heljestrand MKs. It looks like it would be very comfortable. The blade's finish looks very clean.
And what a great price for a unique 6/8 Solingen in great shape!

Members need not bother trying to find a better deal on the bay or elsewhere.

Best of luck with the sale

For that matter, members need not bother trying to find a better gentleman to deal with. I've been quite fortunate to have numerous opportunities to work with Obie; each exchange was met with warm personable communication and descriptions that are spot. Your transaction will be smooth.. remarkable..

Obie, if this were a square point I would be all over it.. GLWS.

Hello Mike,
You're kind, my friend. Thank you. Yes, I know your love of the square point. This one, however, is an incredible shaver. It is also about as hollow as you're going to get, producing almost a symphonic sound of buttering toast.
I have gone back and forth on whether to keep the razor or let it go — the tab goes toward my book publishing fund. It will withdrawn tonight and I'll keep it.
Stay well.
