The Electric Cutlery is an American made razor. That style is known as a "faux frame back" nowadays. Once again, nice blade. Looks to be a 5/8 which for some strange reason, the majority of American made razors were produced as. Handles/scales look to be celluloid.
Neither is particularly expensive or rare, however, they are very nice older razors to slightly clean up, hone and saw whiskers with if you are of such a mind. If you decide to go that route, send them to someone that knows how to hone a razor. I've seen very nice razors ruined by clowns with belt sanders and no damn clue as to what they are doing and no idea of how sharp a razor has to be to give a good shave.
I'm on here about once a month for a few minutes, so I can't be a whole lot of help for you. I do know how to hone razors and can occasionally be talked into it.
