    The Frederick's from post #2 with new Desert Ironwood scales. The others cracked at the front pivot pin and Bill was kind enough to replace them for the cost of the scales only.

    My three extremely scarce John Williams Damascus Sheffield razors in 6/8 round point (black scales), 6/8 square point (black scales)and 11/16 square point (yellow scales) manufactured 1900-1920s. You can find some treasures on eBay, these were around $15 each including shipping......very fine shavers.

    My precious Jonathan Crookes Razor :



    I don't know exactly why, but I have a weak spot for Crookes razors.

    An embarassingly horrible pic of my Joseph Allen & Sons 5/8 with Barber's Notch and bone scales. Scales are original to the razor

    Medic,
    I've got a Joseph Smith & Sons (not "& Co") Sheffield in a similar style. From what I've found, J Smith was active on Arundel Street c. 1828-1852, then a new shop was registered at 40 Radford Street c. 1852-1860. There was a variation of the company that was active in England until 1953... wonder if yours might have come from this post-1860 period under the different name?

    Im gonna reserch it a bit and update but I did see some artical online about inportant names in the early Sheffield steel manufacturing and Joseph Smith is one of them also cast steel would seem very old as a term even though at it's time it may have been cutting edge so to speak
