    Default Jourdain Razor. Info?

    I wonder if anyone has info on this beast? 9/8 with horn scales. I like the grinding wheel/pulley setup on the back tang!

    Well, I suppose starting a thread stimulates! I have found that the tang stamp indicates it was imported into France and is German made.
    I reckon that Jourdain was a French dealer. The grinding wheel on the back tang should be a clue to the maker?

    That is one beautiful razor the deep grind on the blade is stunning. Camille Page, mentioned a few Jourdain Coutellerie in his books "La coutellerie depuis l'origine jusqu' nos jours", a reference cutlery encyclopedia.

    I tried to search for the trademark with the grinding wheel but didnt find anything worth mentoning. On a hunch, looking at your pics once again,
    the number 41 1/4 and found 2 examples of Solingen razors with a big blade wich is somewhat unusual for older German razors from the same maker. http://straightrazorpalace.com/show-...41-1-4-ak.html

    Its a long shot but possible!

    Excellent detective work, Martin! (as usual!). The razor itself seems a dead ringer for the Knyn in the first link you provided. The sucker is pretty big, so I wondered if it was not ground on a 41 1/4 wheel! .
    Well, if nothing comes up, I shall call it a Solingen Knyn, made for Jourdain in France! An old one, for shure!
    Thank You, Sir!
