    I think I remember having something on the FAROH mark but need to look. Those scales are in great shape. Based on blade style I would peg this one at no earlier than the 1790s, possibly as late as 1810 (this is based on other dated examples and the changing of styles gradually). But need manufacturer info and dates to be sure.

    Nice catch! Unfortunately (for me), I was bidding against you and lost. Congrats!

    Thanks. Don't feel bad just before this one I miss a G Smith that Fikira had on the bay. In my infinite wisdom I just new it would sell for way more and decided I wouldn't bid. It sold cheaper than this one did. Still kicking myself on that one.

    Nothing turned up for Faroh. This is speculative, but it may be instead FARQR. There is precedence for Farqr. being a shortened form of Farquhar, a name that shows up quite a lot in England. I didn't turn anything up in my initial search for that surname, but you may want to look more into it.

    Dont even think about kicking yourself. The truth is, and I have proven this myself numerous times, that the only reason it went cheap is because you were not there driving the price up! You would not have gotten if for that " a few dollar more" instead if would have cost you a fist full of dollars

    Those are my favorite type of scales of the period. Easy to duplicate and nice to shave with. Thank you!
