Ever-ready shaving brushes has been iconic in the shaving industry for more than a century, The Kampfe brothers introduced the Star Razor in 1875, the first safety razor made in the United States. Jerry Reichard, after working for the Kampfe Brothers for 23 years, leaves to start his own company - the Gem Cutlery Company in 1898. In 1903 Jerry Reichard leaves Gem to form yet another razor and blade producer, The Yankee Company, which is later renamed Ever-Ready in 1905. Gem & Ever-Ready merge in 1906. In 1915 Ever-Ready Shaving Brushes are first introduced. Gem & Ever-Ready merge with Star to become the American Safety Razor Corporation in 1919.
This two toned brush comes in a dark green and cream handle and is fitted with a 21 mm Super badger knot. The brush stands 122 mm tall and weighs 86 grams, quite the fatty. The brush has a nice in-between-long-and-short shape with a waist size of 23 mm and a base diameter of 37 mm.
The brush is in good condition with a blemish here and there, but no nicks and cracks and certainly looking better than most pensioners in its age group!
