i dont believe we do evaluations, but the WB looks cool. although there is a huge chip on the edge near the toe.

i am pretty sure valuations aren't allowed if following the same rules as other forums. i think that is what ebay is for. 

as for the razor, this is the best i could find. 

In the 1850s a mechant called Edward Gem run a hardware business in Birmingham, but teamed up with two gents called Moilliet to form Moilliet & Gem to open a sheffield office. The partnership didn't last long, being dissolved in 1858, but Edward Gem, now styling himself as 'successor to Moilliet & Gem' now had a foot-hold in Sheffield and was manufacturing cutlery and knives, particularly Bowie-style knives. 


the w&b is nice but what a shame about the chip.

They're worth what you paid. I have no knowledge on straights but they look pretty rough. Unless you have some serious restore skills, they will take a few bucks to bring up to shave ready.

Welcome to TSN. 

Those are decent razors. The first one is in good shape and will be easy to buff and hone. If you want a mirror-finish on it, that will take more work -- and some people don't like mirror-finishes on vintage blades.

The second one is more problematic. It has a nice engraving on the blade, but it has the big chip and some oxidation. If you try to remove the oxidation, you will lose most of the engraving and probably all the gold wash. The chip will take time and effort to hone out, and will decrease the width of the blade a lot too. 

Good luck with them.

I'm sure he'll be back when he finds another razor in the wild and needs to know how much he can flip it for.

I am guessing he can get over 9000.
