    Just picked up an 8/8" For Barbers Use with Barbers notch near wedge for $15.00 and change at a Antique shop In Casey IL. Black horn scales that need help but better than some I have seen. I know No picture, it didn't happen but it did happen & does anyone know what era these were made & when did they start putting "Sheffield" on the razors?

    The England on the tang came around 1891 IIRC due to trade or import reason. Country of Origin I believe. And as a guess these are from around 1840s to late 1890s. The FBO or for barbers only pre date the FBU. This is all of memory serves me correctly. Can't wait to see a pic and congrats on a fantastic score! And what a deal!

    I really like the size and lines on that one. Not too big, just a gentle smile and the always welcome notched point.

    The scales remind me of the "Lather Well...Shave Well" I've got that needs work.

    This is a nice size about 13/16, slight smile as you said. Just wipes the stubble away so easy. I'm thinking originally these were faux tortoise dyed horn. Now they are just polished blonde. All original except the pins. Get yours done and share that sucker JP5!

    The only FBO I have seen have been on later models of WB razors. FBU goes way back, at least into the 1830s. The big-blade FBU have been on a number of distinctive blade styles.

    I was incorrect I had things backwards, I found what I was trying to remember, FBU 1840 - 1900
    The big choppers 1830 - 1880
    FBO 1840 - 1880
    This info was from Mannah he said it comes from the standard guide. Thanks ScienceGuy for the help.
