The KAIN-ABEL Register

This category contains all straight razors of the brand »Kain-Abel« that have appeared so far. On this website, however, I can only publish photos of those models to which the respective owners and/or photographers have granted me the usage rights. (The corresponding models are linked in the table below.)
If you own a razor of the brand »Kain-Abel« yourself, I would therefore be pleased if you sent me photos of the front and back, as well as the permission to publish them on this page (plus, if you also agree, your name and your place of residence). A simple e-mail to Dirk[at]kain-abel-razors.com is sufficient. This way, you can help filling the »Kain-Abel Register« with life.

Thanks a lot!

* At first I was not sure if this model was merely a Kain+Abel Special, where the handle had been exchanged over time. Meanwhile, however, I have discovered this razor twice more, which makes it very likely that it is indeed the original composition.
However, since this handle was also used with at least two straight razors by the manufacturer Merx & Co. (namely the model 532, and a model with a blade from Kayser Ellison Silver Steel), I assume that Emil Broch purchased the handle from some wholesaler.
