    Default 6/8+ Joseph Rodgers & sons in Horn Acrylic

    Amazing company history here over 300 years of making Sheffield razors 1682-1990 is what I am showing in my books

    This one has some engraving on the blade that says Dutch Hollow Ground
    Minor pitting and some small rust spots..

    I used greaseless compounds but had to back it down a touch to save the stamp...
    Tony asked for something a little wilder in the design of the scales I hope you like these...
    All brass hardware including the center pin and concho.....

    Mr Rodgers sure doesn't look like the same razor I picked up a few weeks ago at a flea market. I've got to admit I was a little dubious about the acrylic horn scales at first, but they really set this razor off. Great job as always!

    Very nicely done Glen with an attractive finished work. The before pics really add to the perspective of the work performed.

    Normally I don't go for
    something a little wilder in the design of the scales
    but I really like these.Maybe it's the material.Or the Blade.At any rate,it works together.Nice work as usual.

    The funny part was that I asked him "Is there something you have in mind"????
    "No Glen, Just have fun" I love that response....

    In my sleep deprived state this morning, I failed to mention that I really like the way the scales play off the french point. You're a genius G.
