    Default 5/8 E. Townley & Sons, Birmingham

    Manufactured around 1890. Located at 75 and 76 Bull Street Birmingham England. Back of Blade almost straight with a French point and no shoulder. Blade measures approximately 2 7/8 by 5/8 at heel and 9/16 at toe. On shank "E. TOWNLEY & SONS - BIRMINGHAM". Blade cleaned , polished and honed shave ready. Horn scales cleaned and Polished with original pins. Blade closes slightly off-center.

    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 disinfecting. 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 before disinfecting. If razor gives a close comfortable shave I call it shave ready. If it does not shave right I re-hone the razor. I hone razors as a sideline and have only had praise on the sharpness of the razors. Check my feedback and you will see how many customers were satisfied with shave ready.

    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.
