    Default 6/8 Greaves & Sons, horn scales

    Manufactured 1816-1850. Thomas Turner & Sons took over in 1845-1919. Back of blade straight with a square point and single shoulder. Blade measures approximately 2 6/8 x 6/8. On shank 50% of “W. GREAVES & SONS - SHEAF WORKS - SHEFFIELD”. Blade cleaned, polished and honed shave ready. Light pitting on back of blade does not affect edge. Blade is hollow grind. Original horn scales cleaned and polished. Original pins tight. Number 283 lightly scratched in scales.


    Light coat of oil for protection on blade. Please look at photos as they are best description.

    Honing: One layer of electrical tape on spine. Bevel set on 600 grit diamond hone. Then 6000 water stone and finished on 12,000 oil stone, then glass plate. Then stropped on canvas with diamond paste and then leather and disinfected. A $18.00 VALUE FREE

    I personally test shave each razor before final disinfection. Shave ready is different to each person. Factors like light or coarse beard or beard length come into play. I have a heavy beard and test shave every razor on a two day growth. If razor gives a close comfortable shave I call it shave ready. If it does not shave right I re-hone the razor.

    Payment due in three days.


    U.S. SALES ONLY! Free USPS First Class shipping. If you want to buy the razor PM with shipping address, email and phone. I will PM back with PayPal email address. Will ship when payment received. Will email you tracking number, and my phone number.

    Thank you.
