    Really nice one! Could be the scales original for that knife?

    That's a real gem Michaelshane. I'll bet it shaves like nobody's business too.

    This is a GB Anchor brand razor - not exactly sure who that maker is, but its a super cool 9/8" bellied hollow in blue spalted hackberry, preceded by an 8/8 George Savage in burled maple. Fibers and oil on blade, forgot to wipe it all clean lol.

    The razor was made by John Sellers before 1855, when the company was restyled John Sellers & Sons, after the founder death.

    Question

    Not so pretty but it must have been well loved!
    James Codfer. I have found no information on him. It has jimps on the thumb side of the tang. Rescale is ~pine with copper horse leather rivets. My guess is 1860-1890. I would love to know its story! She shaves very well and has held a good edge for a couple years.

    My fully restored Taylor's 3000, now I have personally restore many 1000 models but this will be my first 3000 these were some of the very last Taylor's to be made, with a slightly shorter blade longer tail and tang than most vintage straight razors they tried to make a better balanced razor, well It certainly feels very well balanced when using the razor shaves like a dream as well, this information was given to me by a TSR UK forum member old blade grinder who worked for Taylor's back in the day. The razors a French point 13/16
