    I think if they were military issue they would most likely have a Wehrmacht property stamp on them? But they are a nice period set, as you mentioned. I see no reason why they could not have been carried by a soldier. I know from talking with Vets that some guys bought these and did hair cuts for comrades to earn a bit of beer money.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Yes, Ade you have a point, looking at a military shaving razor I have, it does have a labeling motif indictating property of the Wehrmacht.Thanks for the post. Unfortunately I can only show one picture, the rapper is still sealed.

    Alec,
    I cannot vouch for the "Rasierapparat" being authentic but the fact that the box of the hair clipper has a Swaz on it doesn't necessarily mean that the item's "Wehrmacht Issue"!
    In my opinion Ade's reply makes a lot of sense,and as a matter of fact many soldiers from all armies carried many civvy items with them,and they still do today!
    Cheers

    the hair-cutting machine was purchased in a German business
