    Default My first frameback

    Gentlemen

    My first frameback and first Wostie.

    Appears in NOS condition, no bevel and no hone wear on the brass frameback spine.
    It has an interesting faux Damascus etching on front and back and lovely hand writing script on the spine.

    I have done very little in the way of cleaning her up, but as you can see very little is needed. She took an easy edge and shaves like a dream, I was literally giggling how nice it was.

    No "England" on the tang indicates pre 1890. "Washington Works" on the tang indicates after 1848 but I wouldn't be able give an exact date.

    The pics

    Wow - spectacular find....it's fantastic when you find something that's essentially managed to sit out 150 years without a single sign of ever being touched or used in any way....beautiful specimen.

    I saw that in your SOTD and my eyebrows shot up....this explains it! :-)

    Winner on that find.....

    Incredible score! That razor is in astonishing NOS condition for its age.

    Cheers fellas,

    Yeah, 150 odd years and its almost immaculate, my heart skipped a beat when I opened up the mail box yesterday. Been grinning like the village idiot since.
