    RARE Wade & Butcher Display Straight Razor. Commemorative razor ca. 1876. This one of a kind with both sides deeply etched with American scenes of ships and trains, mixed with nymphs and mermaids on reverse side. The front side is etched with a scene of the signing of the Declaration of Independence. The blade is heavily file worked and completely cover the etched scenes of American industry, commerce and various American ways of living. This Razor is an important piece of history and would complement even the most advanced collection. Excellent condition. 20 inches long closed.

    Be careful how you treat people on your way up, you may meet them again on your way back down.

    I've had several for barbers only, none bigger than 8/8, for barbers use up to 9/8, never knew there were larger examples! Gb anchor 10/8, joseph rodgers 10/8. No true wedges in the bunch above 6/8 however. Many many near wedges in the 7/8 to 8/8 range and would give you a great feel of what you are looking to experience

    Yes, found out a bit about that one Googling around, in the information I found about it, it was sold at auction, starting bid was set at $10,000 and was expected to sell for between $25,000 and $40,000, it was sold, but alas, no disclosure on the final winning bid.
