    Nice find, Tuzi! 200 year-old shaver!

    Be gentle! (I know you will!)

    Thanks Martin! I was hoping the tang stamp could be helpful narrowing it down.

    Any Guess on who this maker is. It looks like it might be Moore, but can't find any reference on that name for stub tail time period. Wasn't really expecting to buy this one. Put in low bid just because I liked the scales and won for $26.00 so I figure it worth figuring out who made it and age. I don't have the razor yet so maybe can tell more once it is in hand. I almost hope the razor is garbage and shaves awful cause I want to take the scales and use on an older project I never finished.

    I had to share my latest Ebay catch. This was in a small lot. The scales are
    crumbling, this is the good side. I've reinforced the B side with CA and I think I
    can save them.

    I picked this one up at an antiques fair this morning. It's a Clark and Hall Warranted that needs some work, but the price was right.

    Maybe this razor is made by “Henry BIRKS” (7, 1786, F1795),
    son of “Richard BIRKS”, Owlerton, cutler (deceased), to “John“, razor maker.

    Henry (F1795) had 2 brothers, Richard (F1791) & William (F1791), their father Richard, Owlerton, cutler, was deceased ≤1791. It seems to be too much of coincidence that the two brothers Henry & Richard were apprenticed by William & John Birks, razor makers…
    It seems to me the latter are “William BIRKS” (F1774/1783) & “John” (F1786), sons of “William BIRKS” (F1748, †1783). I wouldn’t be surprised if “Richard, Owlerton, cutler”, was a brother of “William BIRKS” (F1774/1783) & “John” (F1786)…

    Otherwise it also could be made by for example “James Birks” (F1791),
    son of “George Birks”, razor maker, who was apprenticed to his father
    (“George Birks” F1754, cutler?)…

    Default Date a razor

    Another of my grandpas razors is a Bingham Criterion, with a crown and V R stamp would say that it was made between 1837 - 1900. The stubbed tail would indicate a date of pre 1870.
    I don't know how to tell if the scales are bone or Bakelite.
    Any ideas

    The markings V R w/crown would indicate the Queen Victorian era from 1837 until her death in 1901 but if it is a stubby then it was more than likely made in the early years of her reign as queen. Some pics would be nice.
