    I was wondering if anyone had any information on this razor. I got it from the Nationwide Box Tour and while honing I noticed that it is very hard steel. It took 4 times longer to set a bevel and even longer then that to smooth it on a higher grit stone. Its a Faux Frameback with formerly painted wooden scales. I'll post up a picture after I find my phone for now here is the picture I took for the box tour thread.

    I don't want or need a value for this razor. It feels good in the hand so I'll be keeping it unless the grind disagrees with me after its sharpened all the way. If that happens I'll PIF it since that's kinda how it came to me.

    All I was able to find is that the company started in 1826, a catalog page scan from 1905 gelle1904_9.jpg , and that they won some prizes and awards in 1925. I have found a few razors but none of them the 44 that this one is.

    I'm not familiar with it, but it looks cool.
