Puma Kayser & Ellison Lauterjung & Sohn solingen.

This beautiful blade was given to me by the extremely kind Ollie AKA Rev-O from over on the UK shaving forum the TSR, It's an early Puma made from the best Sheffield silver steel a full hollow 13/16 round point the original scales were cracked at the pivot and in pretty poor state, well lucky enough I had a beautiful vintage set in a lovely Ivory colour off a scrapped 7/8 they were of a far better quality and fit for a blade of this standing, well during the mock set up I could instantly tell it looked has if the scales and blade had been waiting for each other they looked so perfect I made a blood red wedge and matching blood red spacer and a three pin set up has these scales came without the middle pin so this was added, well the razor has been fully restored and honed and ready for her first outing I hope you like the razor and the restore. PS I forgot to add I will be restoring the lovely little Oak box the razor came with, it looks like it was one of a pair.

Beautiful restore, Jamie. The scales are an outstanding match to the blade. I look forward to seeing the razor in the restored box.

Hello,

Very nice. I really like the red wedge. It really adds some energy to razor.

You have done a great job there Jamie, will it be for your collection or will you sell it?

Hi Steve,

Well to be honest even though I really like the razor and it's certainly a razor that I would class as a rarity being a Puma with a Sheffield steel blade shoulderless and very collectible, If you know me and my tastes you would soon realize this blade does not fit into my collection, so I doubt I will hold onto the razor but I have someone who as already asked me to sell the razor so I suppose she will be moving home.PS and another thing I have two NOS vintage razors coming in and a custom in the next few weeks so another reason to say goodbye to the Puma.
