This Karnak square tip is in good condition with little spine and edge wear. It has been honed up to a 8k progression and is shave ready. The blade has a half hollow  grind, and dates from around 1920 to 1940's. It was made by the More Co, based in St Louis, Missouri. I can find little on them, this being the opinion of one seller; Karnaks are simply amazing shavers. They are some of the last forged vintage razors out there, and in our experience with them, they are best described as smooth as silk. Think of it as a cross between an awesome Sheffield and a Japanese Tamahagane blade. The blade is 70mm long and at width of 6/8ths. 

*Vintage razors are priced according to model and availability, time spent cleaning and reconditioning and time/level of honing.
