So, anybody ever hear about "Telino" brand straight razor from Solingen, vintage. Try to find on google but can not find anything valuable about.

Thx

Nothing. Then again, I think we forgot more brand names than we actually remember.

Me neither.

Then the light shone, trumpets sounded and I got to the other side, where men shave with smiles on their faces, razors pop hairs, and a continuous choir singing «~~Keen and Smooth~~» is heard everywhere. (Matt)

Sadly,thats true. There were a whelm of small manufacturers in the past,quite often with just the educated forger and an apprentice. Those small companies often did`nt survive for long and their modest contribution towards razor making are unlikely to have survived a century of misuse. That does`nt nececarily mean they were lousy razors,but time just did`nt treat them well. I found an "Orendi" razor some time ago,a very fine specimen in original box,unused. But thorough searching revaled noting about the brand. But a very fine shaver it is.
