Vintage Antique WADE & BUTCHER Sheffield Straight Razor 13/16\" RESTORED HONED:
$125.00

This Razor: medium-large format late 19th century straight razor manufactured by therenowned Sheffield cutlers, Wade & Butcher. It measures 13/16ths of an inch in width. It has a clear maker\'s stamp on the tang, stating \"Manufactured by Wade & Butcher Sheffield,\" and a square tip on the toe. The blade has a generously curved bellied edge.The blade still shows some significant residual pitting and discoloration, which is not unexpected for a blade of this age; a patina that is a testament to its many generations of service.


Despite its blade etching \"The Celebrated Extra Hollow Razor,\" by modern standards, this razor actually has a half to three-quarters hollow grind. In Sheffield, true hollow grinds were not commonplace until slightly later.


This razor has new custom acrylic scales with hand-machined brass pin covers and brass pins. Less visible to the eye, when re-pinning the razor into its scales, I added brass washers to the pivot to increase its enduring longevity. please see photos for further details.


Please scrutinize the photos for details. 125+ years old and still going strong, ready to serve several more generations!


I honed this razor with great care, as I would for my own razors I use for personal daily use.


this razor was honed with the following progression with two layers of tape to protect the spine:


Shapton Kuromaku Ceramic 2k

Shapton Kuromaku Ceramic 5k

Seuhiro Kouseki

Nakayama

Vintage Scottish Linen Fire Hose Strop

Tony Miller Rough Out Strop

Tony Miller Fast Bridle Strop


I will sanitize this razor with Clippercide before shipping.


My Story: I fell in love with vintage straight razors some years back when I became irritated with the exorbitant cost of disposable razor cartridges. I taught myself to refurbish antique straight razors, utilizing my background in jewelry and sculpture in learning to make custom razor scales, to pin them properly,and, through great effort and dedication, have gained a reputation for nicely honed shaving edges. Each of these blades is a journey, with a history. A man\'s hands created it long ago to last for generations. You and I are part of those generations. I try to be sensitive and cognizant of the historical context of each razor, as well as the spirit and intentions of the original blademaker so that I may bring them back to life for you, my customer.


Please note that this sale is for the razor only. Any props (holders, whetstones, strops, etc.) Are not included in the sale unless specifically listed in the title or descriptions.
