    I have a tiny thumbnail bio of Thomas Scargill on this page (including a newspaper ad for Scargill 'Old English' razors).

    There's not a whole lot of information to get on him.

    I love that second razor yardie! I've been looking to acquire an old one in that style.

    I really want a pre 1800 blade. My oldest is a 1830-1837 W&B With a hand etched masted ship on the blade with detailed rigging, crew etc. I wish it would photograph better.

    That's beautiful Yardie! I love the way you did your scales if it was you that made 'em! If not I still love it!

    I don't believe my calloused Banana-Grabbers are capable of such fine exquisite work...it was another very skilled member that did this incredible restoration for me.

    Not showing very well at all is the 'Magnum Bonum' on top of the spine, the etching was faint but definitely visible.

    Looks good to me. Great job!
    Just looking at the blade through the scales, it looks pretty old around that time.

    More 1815 - 1830 than 1780 in my opinion.

    Too much work for a 1700' razor.

    The Original Scales were made of Ivory with big hemispheric rivets, similar to your Razor in Post 324 here in this Thread:
