    This brand was a fun one for me…
    George Korn has branded scissors and tools with this brand, Alfred Field & Co marketed this brand, and had a relationship with Korn.
    There is congressional testimony in 1888 challenging a representation that this was an American product, when it was a German import… going into detail on just how many different tools could be sent to the importer, unbranded, to be sorted and stamped by them, signifying different quality.

    The 5/8 Geneva has been doing a lot of stone testing lately, and today ot has an edge from the latest cleanup project stone. A good cleaning and some sandpaper cleans those bases up pretty nicely. Vendor’s image below for comparison. Cream was AoS Ocean Kelp lathered with a Paladin Lime Chief, and a splash of Myrsol Limon finished up.

    Thanks Steve! Not too many modern framebacks out there, and I love what he did with the design of the frame.

    Thank you Karl! :eatdrink047:
    This was my first go with it. I thought I had heard it was finicky to lather, but nothing out of the normal.

    It’s Spanish Sunday, a Filly 14 Sub Cero, soap was La Toja lathered with a Semogue Galahad, and a splash of Myrsol Plastic Shave left me Sunday go-to-meeting good.
