|GEO. WOSTENHOLM & SON - SHEFFIELD - 11/16 - 3/4 HOLLOW
This is a very nice ® Pipe Razor from Geo. Wostenholm & Son in extremely nice condition
The custom scales are Aqua Glass Acrylic , tapered with a the same Aqua Glass. This is a higher grade acrylic with superb optical clarity, scratch resistant, excellent resisting to natural aging and heat resistance.
Brass, Nickel Silver and Stainless Steel pins and Washers.
I decided to leave the original frosted etching untouched which looks really nice. One cannot restore and keep the frosted etching at the same time. The rest of the razor has professionally been restored, cleaned to a nice high shine. Pictures don't even do this razor any justice.
The blade is very clean with no rust, cracks, chips or disturbing stains.
Pins are very tight.
The blade measures 11/16
Grind: Wedge to near wedge
Total weight: 1.6 oz
Total cutting edge: 2.80 inches
On the back of the tang it says: G. Wostenholm & Son, Sheffield
On the front it has with the famous pipe symbol
Beautiful example of a Geo. Wostenhom & Son, Pipe razor.
