That's a lovely set, Toby.

I don't know anything about these razors, but perhaps one of our more experienced vintage straights aficionados will chime in soon.

Dorko is a very, very fine Solingen, Germany make and to have a 7 day set is something else! I have one Dorko and love it. I'm amazed a 7 day set was found in an antique store... and in great condition.

Sometimes there were 6 day only sets because some folk didn't (were forbidden to) shave on Sundays.

Great gift indeed, never encountered a Fri-ko myself but I would hone them en use them.

Any of the Solingen razors should be great.

I would bet any vintage Solingen razor would be worth using. If the rest of the razors are in as good a condition as the one pictured you are laughing. I would hone them up and use that terrific gift from your parents. What size are the blades? You're a lucky man, enjoy them.

Bob
