All three were wild finds and rescues from three different states. The razors are C V Heljestrand MK 31 in ivory. One is a orphan Thursday from Texas, the second came from Florida two weeks ago, and the box from Massachusetts. The box was from an antique mall, listed as a pencil box. It was time to reunite the long lost brothers and give them a home to live in, a homemade gentleman's set. I will give them the love they deserve.

Thank you all, gentlemen. It took a few years to make this marriage happen. 
They will stay together for a long time or until I assume room temperature.

Tim, I too love MK*31s. Here are 2 of my 18, I believe this pair to be NOS because there are no hone marks.

Beautiful set OP.  A well honed Heljestrand is a remarkable thing.  I have a handful of Heljes but this is my only MK31 so far.
