    Default British Indian Razor

    Made for the Indian Army in the second world war by George Butler.

    These razors have the British Military Broad Arrow Head or Pheon mark and an Initial . In this case an "I" for Indian.

    According to Wikipedia there were around 2.5 million British Indian Troops and around 90000 died during the second world war.

    This one had a light clean up with a mirror finish, Ox horn scales, Black with white parts and a steel lined wedge.

    Very cool, would be awesome to have an NZ one.
    Have seen the odd army issue DE down here in poor condition, but no straights.
    Wonder if they were meant for a certain rank up.

    The work you have performed on the razor looks really good. I especially like the wedge treatment.

    Thanks Randy, It would have been nice to have the original scales & wedge but they were missing. Probably should have just gone with a lead wedge really but if a razor is pit free and shiny i feel obliged to bling it up a bit ..Cheers
