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 blue and cream handle has been fitted with a 21 mm Best badger knot, one of our favorite knots in the 20 to 22 mm class. 

This model 150 is a bit harder to find than the red/cream models, and still in pretty good form. It has been filled with resin to add structural strength and heft. It stands 107 mm tall, and has a waist of 28 mm and weighs 58 grams

a Nice piece of functional vintage gear to pretty up your space while serving your face.
