    Default Wade & Butcher Logo/makers mark request

    Hey Guys,

    I'm wondering if anyone can help me in obtaining a high-res image of the W&B logo (The original tang logo,before it was acquired by Durham Duplex). I'm wanting to redraw it for a project but the only images I can find are either too small to properly trace the unique lettering, or are of poorly/unevenly stamped tangs.

    The typography on most of the boxes I've seen is also quite different to the actual stamped logo - so images of these are no good to me.

    In another thread many moons ago someone posted a small scan of a paper showing the various 'official' Wade & Butcher marks, this is ideally what I'm looking for, but that scan was very small so it's not usable.

    I wonder, does anyone have similar ephemera for Wade & Butcher? I mean like original instructions that came with a razor that has clear printing of the official logo/s? If anyone does, I would really appreciate it if you could create a high-res scan of the print and PM me with it? That would be incredible...

    It is strange that you really don't see a lot of printed Wade & Butcher material online.. but surely there must have been tons of printing showing off the logo in the company's hey-day..?

    Any help would be very much appreciated.

    Thanks Gents.
    - Mike

    Thanks, I've of course seen this link before - but this is an example of the type of low-res images I can find myself online - it's just of too poor quality.. What I'm hoping is that some one has a nice clean printed item showing the full logo/s that can be scanned at a high DPI and shared with me

    Thanks again,
    - Mike
