    Wouldn't it be great if you could have a conversation with the chap who first owned that Roberts Warranted?

    Funny you say that. I shaved with it last night and it was so fantastic. I was thinking the same thing. Karl said it might be as old as 1820 or 1830

    By looking at the shape of the blade and the monkey tail on the Roberts Warranted it wouldn't surprise me if it went back to the late 1700's.
