Hello all,

Can anyone give me additional details on this razor?

Steel has "Geneva Cutlery Corp., Geneva, NY, USA"

Box has King Cutter printed on it. I'm looking to buy this in a local sale, but I don't know a lot about vintage razors and any input would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks for your time!

A little additional research has led me to believe this is a mismatched pair. Geneva Cutlery Corp operated from 1902-1935 in Geneva, NY and Boker, while also a manufacturer in New York, did not use Geneva Razors.

The seller has also indicated there is a small pyramid on the tang. Handle might be ivory, but also may be bone in her estimation. She also thinks the caps on the scales are sterling silver. I guess she has some experience in antiques and can make such an assessment with some confidence.

Anything additional info the experts have or any other input or knowledge that can be shared would be appreciated.

The scales are not ivory and I the caps are not silver. Geneva Cutlery was one of the many Case family razor companies, uncles, brothers, cousins, etc.  Steel came from New York.  The razor has wear and tear, but it can possibly be honed and shaved with.  A closer up shot would help tell about the condition.  There could be a slight frown and that's not good, but that could be the lighting and angle.  Frowns would have to be worked out to make a straight straight razor and you'd lose metal.  I would not pay much for it, $15 maybe, but if it has a frown, I wouldn't buy it.
