    Default Bur razor

    A local find from today. Bur (1910) is a trade mark of C Fredrich Ern. It is half hollow and the size is 21mm or 13/16 inch. A light cleaning should be good enough but it is badly in need of a honing from bevel reset up. Apparently it is magnetic steel from the etching on the blade.

    Thanks, I do believe you are correct. Another razor for the Italian market.

    It's a nice razor but you could be taking a big risk since the guarantee expired 97 years ago

    It looks pretty clean and I am sure you can put a great edge on it. Great find congrats.
    Fact: Opinions are not the same as facts... Well, that's my opinion anyway

    Gave it a light clean and polish today then set about honing the chips out of the edge. That took a bit and the razors is likely 6/8 now. Also noticed that it had washers between the scales and tang.

    I found a pair of these about a month back in a small shop we happened upon coming home on a road trip.They both took a great edge.

    Now, that is the way you like to find them. Good shavers aren't they.

    Ern did know how to make razors. Apparently you two know how too find them.

    Must have been a truffle hog in a previous life. Some of the oddest things turn up locally. Never knew Ern has so many trade marks till I looked BUR.
