Place of Origin

Maker Don Juan Blade Co., New York, NY

Maker Details The reason they are common is that when the company went belly-up some gentleman bought all the millions of blades in their warehouse & continued to distribute them long after production ceased. These were made in the 1950s & targeted mainly to the Puerto Rican population in NYC & Jersey & down in the old Puerto itself.
