    A very nice find indeed!

    As for the razor coffin (box), more often than not antique blades are found in non-matching boxes so it's very likely that it doesn't belong to your razor.

    Nonetheless, enjoy your new razor

    The etching is really cool.
    Mastering implies there is nothing more for you to learn of something... I prefer proficient enough to not totally screw it up.

    That is a very nice looking razor. I love the etching and barber' notch. A very nice find indeed.

    Thanks , had the best shave with it . Really thin edge , took very little work to hone . Makes me think it was never used .
