    Default H. & J. W. King in bone

    Hezekiah King was New York hardware and cutlery merchant and in 1869 he was listed at 92 Beekman St. which helps date this razor. A 13/16 near wedge blade that has all the lines of a Wade & Butcher. The blade is restored in a glazed finish as it was originally. The bone scales are nice and thin at .085 with a black horn wedge and brass pins and collars.

    Nice job. I like bone as a scale material a lot.
