* The company Hermann Mehl, which basically led the addition “Bremerhaven / Solingen” on its razors, manufactured straight razors with a very similar handle inlay. The company seems to have been a wholesaler based in Bremerhaven, which had Solingen companies manufacture their razors. Whether this circumstance allows any conclusions to be drawn as to whether Emil Broch bought the handle of this Bromeso razor through wholesalers remains unclear.
