Hello! I'm trying to get more information about the straight blade that I just picked up. It has "J. Voos D. Sohn" with a heart, spade, club, and diamond separated by intersecting lines, and "59 1/2" on one side. The other side says "GARANTIE". Any help would be much appreciated.

Can't give you much info other than Voos D. Sohn had a metalworks in Soligen in the 30s. I am certain one of the historians here can provide some detailed info.

rauliesgirl,
At one time, Solingen, Germany, had hundreds of manufacturers of cutlery products, including straight razors. Voos D. Sohn was such a company, albeit small. Many of these firms lasted a short time, some continued, but eventually most cutlery firms, big and small, disappeared. Only a few remain today. Many companies also produced a variety of straight razors under various models.
