    Gentlemen,
    I just purchased a Marsh and Bros. etched with an eagle, "Epuribus Unum", and Pond works on the shank. Interestingly, my ancestry and razor hobbies crossed and I found a link to razor manufacturers in Sheffield in 1834. You will notice all of the Big Boys and some of the Little are all here. I will post pics of the blade as soon as I get home.

    GENUKI: Sheffield Directory of Trades and Professions for 1834

    Scroll down to the razor manufacturer bit and you will also notice they double up for different items produced throughout the list

    Default Huge Marshes and Shepherd

    Gents.
    I feel I can finally join this fine club.
    This razor arrived a couple of days ago, and man, this thing is huge!
    I generally prefer larger blades, but this is enormous
    It measures 9/8" and a bit.
    In the second picture it sits beside a Swedish J.A.Hellberg, just to show how huge it is

    Sorry about the picture quality.

    I bid on this and (obviously) lost it. Still haunts me. Personally I think it was one of the prettiest things I've seen on the Bay all year. Glad to see it went to a good home!

    My only Marshes & Shepherd, in curly maple. Fibers on the blade due to the oil. Big and beautiful, just the way I like 'em!

    Default My first Marshes & Shepherd

    Here is my first Marshes & Shepherd. Green horn scales is broken but probably not the original anyway. If the Wiki is right, this should date to 1825
    -1828 as there is no reference to "Pond Works" on the tang. Part of the "...shave well" is still on the blade. Not sure what to do about the broken scale. Could add a small pin or could rescale it in a nice horn or bone. Welcome comments and opinions on this and how to proceed. Have not yet put an edge on it, but should be able to with a little effort. Anyway believe this is a nice addition to my stubby collection.
