It may seem a little vain, but as a son of a captain(military) and a nephew of a captain(fishing) I've grown up around a lot of nautical / ship / boating. I've been wanting to get into straights from DE razors, and lately I have seen a few straight razors with anchors etched in the steel, and since I know nothing of straights.. I figured I would ask around for some brands of straight's that may have the anchor etched in it. And how much the price might be for them!


Thanks in advance..

Wade & Butcher made a rather large Anchor straight.
They are hard to find and usually fetch a pretty penny.

Good luck in your search!

George Brittain, Sheffield maker, they are usually stamped GB on the tang with a large anchor

These also fetch a pretty penny

I think there are several threads on these razors over at SRP

I think Wester Bros made a few with an anchor. Those are plentiful and inexpensive.
