It's a most beautiful vintage Sheffield razor. Well balanced and precision like. Blade is 13/16 wedge with a gentle smile and barbers notch. Very faint marks, quite difficult to see.. With my aging eyes, I would call it blemish free. Scales are black horn, double pinned at the wedge end and tight at the pivot. Closes dead center. Most certainly shave ready, having only one shave on it after being honed by my favorite honemeister Obie.

$225 Free shipping in the ConUS. Open to Int'l shipping at actual cost. PayPal only.

Mike,
I think remember that blade and that it took a fine edge. You have re-scaled it into a handsome razor. Good show.

Thanks Obie.. You honed the horn scaled razor in the last lot I sent you. I have one shave on since it came back from you. The black horn scales were done by artisan Zephyr and this is how I bought it from him.

You also worked on W&B Celebrated regrind I sent... I was unsure whether the regrind would take an edge but you were happy with the results. The stage scales, however..they had to go. I restored that one and dressed it in camel bone with the original lead wedge. The edge needed to be freshened up, but it is killer once again. I don't think I would ever sell this razor.

Ah, Mike, now I remember. Fine razors, indeed. I do like the re-scaling by Zephyr on the one for sale. The razor will be a keeper for a lucky buyer.

Agreed.. the scales are, in my opinion, perfect.

It is a sweet razor Ravi. Just time to thin the inventory.
