    Default 13/16 R. Sutcliff, Sheffield, Masonic design, near wedge

    Manufactured 1820-1840. Back of blade straight with a square point and single shoulder. Blade measures approximately 3 x 13/16 at widest point. Etched on front of blade are Masonic Symbol. On shank “R. SUTCLIFF - SHEFFIELD RAZOR”, inside border. Blade cleaned, polished and honed shave ready. Still some dark spots and minor pitting. Honey horn scales cleaned and polished. New brass pins and scales. Bug bites filled with Superglue.

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

    Honing: Three layers 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.

    $45.00

    I believe it was made by R. Sutcliffe with an "e". My family was from this area. Cheers, Mike Sutcliffe.
    That will make all the difference!

    Mike you are absolutely correct. It was either dirty glasses or old age. Probably both. Onle way to edit it now is to close it and relist. Will do that later.
    Thanks
