    William Greaves and sons, original scales were bent and broken so unusable. Replaced with some (probably little later) Sheaf works ones.

    A real pleasure to shave with !

    I have one like that & those are the right scales for it. Those blades are significantly longer than a normal straight razor plus since they're longer they weigh more.

    I'm not sure if this one counts, but I'd say it is a stub-tail. It dates to between 1816 and 1822. It is my first and only near-wedge and my only one that is nearly 1 inch, at 31/32". Name:  200YearOldW.Greaves&SonsSheffield.jpg

    Well, looking at it now, I am reminded that it is not a stub-tail, but I think this razor was right after the end of that era. You all can remove it, if you want. It shaves very well; gives me that "rubbery" shave. I love English wedges/near-wedges. They are about the only style of razor (with the exception of maybe a 3/4 hollow) that can handle my dense, wiry beard. I have to prep very well, to get great results. Later.

    Picked up two new ones. An unknown from Germany. Any info anyone knows would be great. Very short blunt tail. The other is a John Sheppard dip toe, but the tail is a sharp point. Not sure what to make of that. Both need some work to get shaving again.

    Another for the club. Got this yesterday and honed it up. Now to strop it and wait for the whiskers to grow to give it a test. No idea of the maker. Was a bit of a challenge for me to hone.
