This is a Filarmonica 14 Doble Temple Jose Monserrat Pou, just under 8/8, hollow ground shave ready straight razor made in Spain.

Filarmonica is probably the most collectible brand and a for a good reason. The smoothness of shaves is unparalleled. The 14 series were the biggest Filarmonica razors.
Decorated shank with the Filarmonica harp deeply engraved. Thick spine and a great grind that will slay the toughest beards. Jimps on top and bottom of the shank for better grip. Beautiful horn scales. The razor comes with a coffin (see last photo).

This razor looks better, will appreciate in value, and probably will outlast a new plastic Gillette razor oh by a few decades.

This razor was professionally honed. The cutting edge of this blade is sharp, and smooth capable of very close and comfortable shaves. This razor is shave-ready.

What does shave ready mean? This razor is shave-ready that means you can shave with the razor right out-of-the-box upon arrival. In order to get a razor shave ready it has to be honed. Honing usually costs $25 plus shipping by most vendors. This is important to know because most razors sold ANYWHERE are not shave ready even if they are new (i.e a new Dovo). New razors have "factory edges" which is not considered shave ready by the majority of straight razor users. If a straight razor is not shave ready it will not shave comfortably. Feel free to contact me for my honing services.

Why buy from me? Because if you buy a straight razor from me I will teach you how to shave with a straight razor. I will send you specific, concise instructions on how to shave with and maintain your straight razor. This information took me a long time to learn, often through painful trial and error.

Also there is no such thing as a "beginner straight razor". If it appeals to you, get it.
