    Default Mega collated cutler information

    G'day,

    I had a search thru the forum search function and the library, perhaps I have missed it, but I swear I found a page which links to a mega list of cutler brands by country/region, each containing company information including trading names by years and associated people, style of blades and a overview of their razors over time?

    If this has been done, can someone please link me?

    If not, would be pretty cool information to have in one easy-to-find place

    Thanks,

    Gimli

    That's it

    Going thru it again and could I suggest of cleaning it up a little?

    Leave the find/search function as is
    Manufacturers/Information-brand history
    Manufacturers/List of razors A-Z by

    Instead of previous/next page

    I looked on a few manufacturer pages and the info is very basic, some don't have any at all. Some have links for external information which are dead (404) and some have zero links

    Would be cool to have a manufacturers page with information in chronological order with such as name changes due to selling/being bought out (if applicable), who was involved and when, with photos identifying tang stampings throughout the years of production

    Move all 718 razor entries into by Manufacturer pages to clean it up the front page of the wiki a little?
    Perhaps even a sort by country/region for manufacturers

    I'd love to help beef it up over time

    Just some thoughts

    Everything you said went right over my head. But if it makes it better i see why not. Maybe ask a mod about it?

    Historically, the wiki is entirely user edited. You should be able to make an account for yourself and edit the content.

    I completely missed that

    Who is the staffer(s) who oversees it/best to contact? Would love to discuss with them

    Well, Gugi would be going to the top of the ladder. He should be able to help or point ya in the right direction.
