    Default 8/8+ Wade & Butcher 'For Barbers Use' Near Wedge, Original Scales, Shave Ready

    Well, the time I knew was coming has finally arrived - my neuropathy has degenerated to the point that I can no longer use straight razors. Therefore, I will be listing my remaining straights, stones, and strops over the next several days.

    Offering a very desirable 8/8+ Wade & Butcher 'For Barbers Use' near wedge with barber's notch, in original black horn scales and lead wedge. The blade is clean with some staining and pitting but none near the edge. The scales are the original water buffalo horn, they are in good condition, with some shrinkage and bug bites - mostly on the inner surface. The wedge is the original lead, in very good condition. The scales have been pinned using brass bullseye washers and pins.

    The razor is freshly honed on Japanese natural stones: sharpening and pre-finishing on a Shinden Hon Suita using a full Asano Mikawa Shiro Nagura progression (Botan, Tenjyou, Mejiro, Koma), and final finishing on a Nakayama Asagi Tomae with Tomo Nagura slurry and then plain water. Honing was done with a single layer of .007" tape.

    Asking $300.00 with free shipping via Priority Mail to the continental United States; APO, FPO, and international addresses will be shipped at cost. If you are interested, post your claim here as per the rules and send me a PM. Questions are welcome, and thanks to SRP for offering this service to members!

    Truly sorry for the degeneration you are experiencing.
    GLWS. And hope the new owner values this beautiful blade.

    My vintage Gillettes get more use than my straights.

    That one lasted about as long as a Popsicle on a Florida sidewalk.
