Here's a NOS Sta Sharp blade with the original paper coffin, as marketed in the USA by Sears Roebuck. Forged in Solingen of Kayser Ellison (Silver?) Steel. A full hollow grind with deeply etched ornamentation on the blade. I looked for a long time for one of these!

Is there a city stamped on the tang? I am always looking for a Chicago stamped razor to add to quest for the Holy Grail collection.

That's a real beauty!

I have a Sta-Sharp (not one of the Sears labeled ones) in ivory scales. It is easily my favourite razor. I always get excellent shaves with it and it is really easy to maintain.

I've always wanted one of the Sears ones, and seeing yours makes me want to look harder for one.
