    I scored this today at an antique show. Beautiful blade and beautiful black and creme scales. I can't wait to hone this one up and get it shaving!

    You know what I like about the Robesons? They're razors that DO something. They "fit your face", or they "won't cut the strop", they're razors with initiative! Oh yeah!

    This one has some pitting due to celluloid gassing. It might still have a couple of years of shaving left in it.

    Well I finaly got around to getting pics of my current Robeson set... looks like 3 more to make the week

    One you will notice doesn't have hammering on it. It was milled flat by a remanufacturer at some point and had their name stamped in. You can still see all the other markers of a robeson Hammer marks at pin hole, number set at tail, and the engraving on the face of the blade.

    The one with rounded scales, was a nightmare... a good bit of rot the first 1/4" of the tip that required just a flat grinding away of the edge till I got past the rot. Than spent a good deal of time putting new bevels on it. Now my fingers are sore...

    So here are the Pics...

    Stropper, that is one heck of a nice job on that razor. While I don't go much for high polish I do like a job well done. Love the depth of the hammer marks, very clean looking

    Thanks for sharing this one

    Hi,

    I thought you folks might be interested in some Robesons that I have come by over the years. None of these models have been shown in the previous posts, so they be of some interest. The first is a model 3537 with twisted rope scales, nice file work on the spine and a sexy thumb notch. This razor came in its original box which was sold in Sunbury, Pa., and is dated 8-2-04.

    All of these razors are great shavers

    Regards - Walt

    Next is a Robeson that doesn't have a model number stamped on it anywhere. It also has twisted rope scales.
