    The 2nd one says "England" on the blade so roughly post 1895

    They had to start putting country of origin on razors roughly 1895, so if it only says Sheffield it's roughly pre 1895. I might be off on the year +/- 2 years

    The celluloid scales on the second razor are not original to the blade. They kind of look like they may have come off of a French blade.
