I recently acquired this beautiful little razor. Red Point razors were made in Solingen, Germany for Fromm Brothers in Newark, NJ. It is 5/8 carbon steel, hollow ground and is a great shaver.

I think the Red Point is one of the undisputed classics of straight razors

Thank you, Jamie. In my limited experience with straights, I'm loving the 5/8 full hollow razors. The feedback is tremendous, like buttering toast, and they shave so smoothly and close, I almost don't need a second pass. After reading some of your razor reviews, I've now purchased two, and couldn't be more pleased.
