Gentlemen, George Packwood's fame rested on his strops and an uncanny flair for business and advertising. He also produced razors. Or, rather, had them produced under his name. This razor may have been produced by one of the great Sheffield razor manufacturer, who knows?
The razor dates, probably, from the 1820s. It is fully restored in horn. It's a 6/8 smiling wedge with a Spanish point, thumb notch and stub tail. And it's in perfect condition, with tight pins and a blade that closes center. Of course, it is a superb shaver, and is shave ready. The price of $150 includes U.S. shipping. Overseas is a wee bit extra. If you want a taste of a great Sheffield wedge, here is your chance to try a beauty. And a rare razor. Thanks.

Gentlemen,
I posted the last price drop on the Packwood wedge. This is a great razor from the 1820s and it will give you a good taste of why the Sheffield wedge razors are acclaimed.
