    Great-looking Elliots posted so far! I thought this might be a club for NOS razors at first glance, but I think I like this better

    This club is entirely underused!

    Here's all of my Elliot razors laid out chronologically.


    You'll notice some are held together with microfasteners, those are the ones I've done a little bit of cleanup on. Several are fully restored, but my goal is for all of them to be once spare time permits.

    The Elliot razors are among my personal favorites. I've found them to be unusually distinctive in their designs (at least during the heyday of the company, that one on the far right is a pretty standard item, but it was made around 1905 according to the Elliot catalog I've seen).



    Most of mine are 'Silver Steel', which seems to have been very much adopted by the company.

    There's a hilarious series of letters that ran in the Sheffield Independent back in 1826 with correspondents naming themselves things like 'AN ENEMY TO FRAUD', 'FLAT BACK' and 'A FRIEND TO INVENTION' all argue back and forth about whether silver steel is useful or just a bunch of hokum. Joseph Elliot made extensive use of the stamp, at the very least. Tellingly, Wade & Butcher (whose main business was originally refining steel, believe it or not!) doesn't seem to have ever stamped anything Silver Steel.



    At least within my collection, the Elliot razors tend to have pretty distinctive blades too.

    Edited to add:

    There's also an Elliot razor in 'BOSTON' stamped scales. I tried to buy it, but was outbid.

    Anyone know about others in that series?

    Voidmaster,

    That is one hell of a good looking lineup of Joseph Elliot's.

    Indeed a beautiful grouping of Elliot's, especially that double thumb notch blade!

    The Elliots sure did love notches! Maybe that's why I love the Elliot razors.
