    Default Mid-1800s Wade & Butcher Masonic 8/8

    I've had this Wade & Butcher 8/8 for a while, and I just don't see myself doing anything with it in the future, so it's time to go. I could use the money more than a razor sitting on my shelf since I have some radiation protection for work to finish paying off (I work in a cardiac cath lab). It is pre-1890, and from what I've been able to ascertain in various threads, it seems to have been made around the 1860s or so. One scale seems to be horn, and I think the other is wood. The etching of Freemason symbols is in pretty good condition as you can see in the pictures. I put a coat of Marine Tuff-Glide on it to help protect against any more tarnishing and rust. The box is in quite good shape for being around 150 years old.

    I'm asking $SPF, shipped priority & insured tyd. I prefer USPS Money Order (same as cash for me, federal mail fraud protection for you), but I will accept PayPal G&S. If you have any questions or would like pictures of a specific area, please feel free to message me!

    If I wasn't already committed to Bruno for a huge razor, I'd be all about this one. I've had many Masons in my family, plus my beard is mostly nice to wedges/near-wedges. Hollows and extra-hollows don't shave my beard very well. You wont have to wait long for a sale.
