The PROPERTY U.S. ARMY Khaki sets were produced during ww1 specifically for the US army. Because of gas warfare it was important to have a clean shaven face, so the gas masks would have a tight fit. That is the reason why the army equipped the soldiers with razors in ww1 opposed to ww2 where they did not. 3,5 mio. Khaki sets were ordered by the army and almost all are marked with a "J" serial number. The lower the number the earlier the razor. So your dads razor set is older that ww2, This video is a superb guide to US military razor sets: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fcJo4QrxkVM
