Help with a razor ID

Sat Sep 21, 2013 3:06 pm

Hello all,

I was hoping someone could help me identify a razor. It says 12 G.K.S. Solingen, and has an etching on one of the blade faces that I do not recognize. I am not sure what it is, it was sold under a brand name that it definitely is not. Hopefully it is not something as simple as GKS brand or something, because then I will feel stale for asking, but I have not been able to find any info on that brand designation. Anyway, I appreciate any help I can get, thanks.

Looks like a G.K.S Solingen No 12.

I don't know too much about it except it was made in Solingen Germany. It should be a great razor as I've read that most of the razors made here were very good. The etching on the blade I suspect wasn't original but I could be wrong.
