    I really hope these turn out to be what i think they are. looks like old teeth for scales and the blades look in good shape. Don't know much about Thomas Turner and co. but they are Sheffield's. It does look like i will need to find new homes for a few of my other blades if these turn out to be as hoped.

    That looks like a great set. I would be anxious too.

    I don't have a great no. of Ivory scaled razors I think this will make about 16 or 17 but I do like the way all those blades shave. I really don't believe I will ever luck upon a full 7 day set. For all 7 to make it this long without serious damage would be a long shot plus all the folks out there collecting. any way if they are ivory and the blades are as good as they look I'll be happy. Anyone out there know anything about the maker Thomas Turner & Co.

    STRAZORS.com - all about classic razors - Thomas Turner & Co., Sheffield.

    Should shave well, at least the Thomas Turner & Co I have does. Congrats on the find.

    Received these today and they are marked Monday Tuesday Wednesday Thursday and from what I can see they have not been on a hone since they were made. I don't know why but one has a pencil markings on it. They do look like Ivory but the wedge is black. I really don't know what the wedge is made of. I do believe they will be keepers for a while anyway.

    I love razor sets, they've got a certain elegance and beauty

    There's something about it, I hope one day to get one, but in the meantime I'll be making one myselff
