Comments

Sorry to say, but this is a very poor example of the beautiful Curvfit Woman's Razor. I have one that seems to have been used, but is in shiny perfect gold-plate, very good condition. The box shows some aging, bit it too is in good condition and has instructions and a pamphlet inside along with a blue flannel bag for the razor and a box of razorblades with only 2 left in it, a sign that it was used.
