A unbranded soligen 5/8, very common in design.

Probably the same manufacturer as this one : unknown "Solingen" 5/8 as it's fairly similar (note the identical scale marking) but seems more recent (semi-transparant plastic instead of celluloid, additionnal plating).

The plating on the blade is soligen's coat of arm. The same decoration can be found on certain dovos, making me wonder whether this is not a debranded dovo. It is extremely similar to Dovo Silver Steel Ebenholz and shave fairly well.
