Now, this one is special. The Rademacher Forges in Eskilstuna, that started out as a cluster of 20 or so forges, amongst them JA Hellberg, CV Heljestrand & EA Berg, is still mostly intact today, the city of Eskilstuna has been very careful when making changes in the area. Some are museums, cafes & such and some others houses knifemakers & similar. The "Bergska smedjan" is run today by a knifemaker. As it turns out it was this gentleman who sold me this razor, so this one is not only NOS & huge, it has spent its entire life in the very forge were it was made in the very heart of the Swedish razor forges!
