    Default Greaves, Pauldrons, and Gauntlets

    Not the most clever name, but whatever - this forum needs a club for Greaves razors.

    Here are a few of mine; more to come when I have a chance to take fresh pictures.

    Yes Alan that is correct. That is where I got that one from. The seller was kind enough to accept a reasonable offer considering that the razor needs work and placed a BIN button on it.

    Just gotten off of the bay out of Iowa Item number:180461406048 . I may have been fortunate in the seller spelling Greaves "Graves" so that it didn't come up in searches. According to Robert Doyle in Collecting Straight Razors it is rare to find an intact double case. These lovely Greaves & Sons Silver Steel etched blades look virtually new as do the scales and the case. The full wedge blades look to have never been honed and measure 15/16 at the widest point. Looking forward to the shave once I hone one up.

    Be careful how you treat people on your way up, you may meet them again on your way back down.

    Wow! Occasionally the Ebay gods smile down on us. Beautiful set of Greaves. I have a few, I'll get some pics.
