I would like to offer a beautifully restored Wade & Butcher straight razor in exchange for a very lightly used Simpsons M7 brush. The restoration was done by Max Sprecher last Fall.

Please send me a PM if interested.

Best regards,
Alex

Thank you! It is indeed a wonderful heavy old razor. Max has restored it exceptionally well! Hope it will find its new home soon.

The indentations on the blade look like chinees characters. We discussed it with Max and our theory is that this kind of straights was produced for a specific segment of the US market in the mid to late 1800. However, it is highly unlikely, that this razor was produced in  China. I will upload a few more pictures in a few minutes.

Best regards,
Alex

Though I would prefer to exchange the razor for an M7, I would always consider a respectable offer from a fellow TSNooker! Please PM me at your convenience.

Thank you for your interest,
Alex
