24c gold open tooth comb safety razor with finely detailed handle, original gold plated box and gold plated blade holder.
Though not nearly as popular as Gillette DE’s, and manufactured with a metal razor head and a plastic handle, the Krona also has a reputation of being a smooth, forgiving razor for the beginner.
I’ve shaved with a couple different Krona razors and while they are quite a bit lighter than the all-metal Super Speeds (at least until Gillette started using plastic handles too) they have a good balance in the hand and give a mild shave (some say too mild and I admit it took a bit more effort from me to get a really close shave out of them).
After that I think engineers began to “over tweak” the design and the accountants began to get more involved in the production process.
Many consider these mid-1950’s razors to be not only solidly built but exceptionally smooth shavers. A letter and a number: the letter corresponds to a year and the number corresponds to the calendar quarter of that year.
It was marketed as the gift the soldier in service would like to have, and many were purchased by family and friends.
