    Default The littlest straight razor that ever there was!

    Got this business card/promotional item for the Rodgers company recently and wanted to show it off. The "straight razor" charm looks to be a true wedge and measures an incredible 2.90mm or less than 1/8 inch in width. The scales do look to be genuine mother-of-pearl in my opinion, having that wonderful sheen and iridescence. The text on the back of the card is somewhat unusual as it says "Cutlers to Her Majesty"; I believe I have seen "Her Majesty" on a few Rodgers pieces (non-razors) but every Rodgers straight razor I have is stamped "Cutlers to Their Majesties". You can get a sense of scale from the penny and also from the 10/8 Rodgers.

    That's a neat piece!

    I'm sure it's meant for detail work.

    I had seen that and thought it was very cool.
    But having too much cool stuff, I passed on bidding.

    Glad you got it! Very Cool!

    That would probably place it in the period between 1860 (when Prince Albert died) and 1901 (when Queen Victoria died). After that it was all kings until 1952.

    What a wonderful piece.

    Rodgers sure did a lot of stunt cutlery!
