    Never seen a frog on a razor before. Someone else had one with a relative of the emu.
    They sure did celebrate a lot of razors in Sheffield back then.

    You use wax as a preservative? Blade and scales? What kind?

    I'm more taken aback by the word Trevor.. Just a first name

    I use this stuff only on the blades but the scales could do with it too.

    Joseph Cam was a much lesser-known Sheffield manufacturer. Probably his biggest claim to 'fame' was stealing a bunch of ivory and other scale material from Wade & Butcher in the early 1820's. He worked periodically after that, but I recall ultimately died in the work house. That one dates to the mid-to-later 1830's.
