I was lucky enough to acquire this beautiful Japanese barbers window display of an AIDA razor.

Made around 1910-1920 and is made of wood and the blade I believe is made of copper and came with the original chain. No, it doesn’t come apart lol and weighs around 5 pounds and is approximately 2 feet long. Definitely pretty rare and will be one of the Crown Jewels in my collection.
