Does anyone understand what the different numbers on Friodurs mean? For example 70 1/2, 72 1/2. I'm going crazy trying to figure out what those German craftsmen mean with these numbers! Huh

Well you won't particularly like the answer. They are at best, model numbers. How the numbers translate into anything useful (width, length etc) is not known. One of life's great mysteries.

I was afraid that was the case. I've been looking at razors and numbers and couldn't figure out any reasonable system to them.

Model numbers reflect blade size: 70 = 5/8, 72 = 6/8, 17 = 7/8 or 15/16; #14 i= 8/8, #59 = 4/8. There are also 1/4 hollow models, 72-V and 11-V, the latter being with an etch.
