Hen & Rooster is well known for their knives and based out of Solingen Germany. I didn't know they made straights but here is one.
It's a wedge blade, heavy looking scales and an unusual tail.
Anyone ever see one of these before? I just got it today.

I rather like that, makes it seem... I dunno, like you could flip it out and twirl it around like a pro.

That is a rather unique tail.

Back in the day they made some very nice straight razors. Nowadays, someone seems to have revived the brand and the quality of the products hasn't gotten terribly favorable reviews on the forums last I checked.

It's a bit of a spoof!
I have a couple of the corn razors, but this is much more accurate.

Tiny as this may appear it's not going to fit into either of those orifices without doing serious damage.

LOL that's....cute.
I dunno about ears and noses, but I'd shave my face with it, it's still wider than a cart/de (i think?)

Out of curiosity, how about a measurement of the width? 3/8" or so?

The blade measures out at 7/16. I have some full size straights that are 4/8! This is only a sixteenth less but isn't as long as a full size blade.
It looks at home with my W.H. Morley and LS & Co. corn razors.
