    **SOLD**

    For sale is a Wade & Butcher "The Celebrated Hollow Ground Razor For Barbers Use" straight razor. Razor is in Great shape, with original Black buffalo horn scales, brass bullseye washers & pins, and original steel (No sanding or grinding done). Etching is still intact, but the black coloring of the letters is lost due to the polishing. Blade is 8/8, with mild - moderate hone wear, but a nice, even bevel all around. Mild patina throughout. Has barbers notch, which we all love :lol: Would make a great shaver, or a great collectors piece. Includes box shown in pictures.

    Tang: Front: "MANUFACTURED BY, WADE & BUTCHER, SHEFFIELD"
    Blade Face: "The Celebrated, Hollow Ground Razor, For Barbers Use", B inside of a circle, arrow pointing towards cross.
