    Looks to be in good shape. Not much clean up needed. I would do a quick clean up hone it and enjoy.

    Joseph Rodgers & Sons are my favorite razors, very smooth shavers. Get her honed by a pro and enjoy!

    Wow.!! I like it, nice smile too.
    Horn scales.? The crack can be repaired, if the wedge is loose.
    Nice find.[emoji482]

    nice razor. 1891 was when they were required to put the country of origin on for export so that would put the date of this before that.

    If it can't be clamped shut with some CA, you'd have to fill it with epoxy and horn dust, then redrill the pin hole and sand the shape back into the scales.
