Clauss USMC razor
Harris Face milk
The Corps seems to have made two major straight razor purchases, both from Clauss and both of the same type of razor. One batch had the USMC etched on the blade, and used plain carbon steel. The second batch had the USMC stamped on the reverse side of the shank, and seems to have used chrome-plated carbon steel. I believe the unchromed batch probably dated to the Spanish-American war, and the chrome-plated batch to WW1 (the marines having learned the value of rustproofing in the extended Philippine campaigns). I have two USMC razors, one from each production run.
This morning's razor is from the earlier Spanish-American war production run. It's pitted and ugly, but still shaves great.
My other USMC razor is below the fold:
