I will put them on rasoir.uk I have come to the sad conclusion that pre WW2 razors are better made and better steel than any of the current razors on the market even when you are paying a lot of money for a high end razor.

It is simple and elegant at the same time!  Just look at that hand forged blade!

This is a Paragon straight razor circa 1880 Sheffield made and stored since it was made. Unused. One of a number of different types I have acquired. Made John and William Ragg, Sheffield. All with crocus polished blades, hand forged, and shaped jimped tang.

Malcolm,

Will you be selling the razors?  If so will you give us a link to where we can find them and YES we want to see them please!

They are pretty much perfect except for one and they kept them all these years in anti-rust paper. I am amazed it's so efficient. It really makes you wonder what else is out there. Anyway time for bed. I had a chap turn up last week and he had boxes of pre 1900 fruit knives many multi-blade. Hundreds and he never came back but I think they will start turning up on auction sites soon.

Greetings. A cache of unused hand forged Sheffield made straight razors pre 1890 has been uncovered in Sheffield. I have a number of them and will post photos tomorrow with a bit of luck.

The thing is with my mother coming up to 103 that's 43 years beyond her retirement age so it's a long time to sit around. That's why I keep working and am interested in new things rather than mundane production. 

Whilst it would not be much use to me in the UK it would be a nice idea to have a database of skills on here. We are running out of them in the UK where protracted moaning is the national pastime.

What is on Uncle Cecils label is only a brief snapshot of a family who were somewhat eccentric. I think it's been passed on to my children and my children's children. The sgian dubhs with the Lee Enfield walnut butt wood is in production.

You don't seem to see many boils anymore or at least I haven't come across one since I was young . My father , I seem to remember , had boils on his neck and had to have them lanced by the company nurse . I guess that is from working in a collar and tie when you are a carpenter , or a chippy as people use to say .
