Krauskopf & Kronenberg, Fritzlar, Germany 1932. Brand name: "Nimbus".

Here, with original case. 

I have never heard of oneof these before, but the handle looks  sort of familiar. Zamac/k, chrome-plated.[Image: bPHMWIj.jpg]

Nice looking razor! Any plans to give it a run?

In time, yes. When I do, I'll post. It's obviously had a decent life. It was found in South Australia where many German mingrants settled earlier last century. Makes sense!

I've seen them, I like the handles, as long as the zamak doesn't have barnacles sprouting out of it, give her a shave.  Sisi

Shaved with it today with a simple Astra Platinum. 

I was surprised just how good a shave it provided. It tended toward the aggressive, if anything, and that is a definite plus for me. I can see why this razor had been well used judging by the wear to the plating on the handle. 

I give it a definite 8 out of 10 for sure.
