|WADE & BUTCHER - SHEFFIELD - FOR BARBERS USE - 15/16
This is a gorgeous famous and highly sought-after Wade & Butcher 'For Barbers Use' extra hollow ground vintage razor in excellent condition from the 1800's. This razor is from my own personal collection and has been well taken care off all these years. For the razor aficionado.
Has a nice beautiful mirror shine.
The custom made scales are Blond Horn tapered with a faux ivory wedge.
The blade measures just a hairline under 15/16
Like most old vintage razors the tang is sometimes slighly bend resulting in a off center closing of the razor so as long as one is careful when closing the razor there's no harm that can be done. Doesn't affect the shave or razor in any way.
