    Thanks Mike for the idea! Since the razor would not be used very frequently for shaving and is more a collection item, I think I will leave it as it is. Just fix the scales again with a cord like it was done before. I really like to have this old ladies as original as possible....

    Hi Lohar,
    I don't think so. The end and surface of the horn tip is rounded, not made flat. Therfore it is also too thick to carry a decoration as shown. And there is not space enough between blade and the notch in the horn. Also you can see clearly that the old pin - at the one side where it is broken, left a mark where the missing part of the pin once touched the horn.

    So I think these pins at the end of the scales are original. The ones holding the blade made have been replaced - I think the razor was dismanteled to grind the tang. But also these "new" pins are old type, so the regrind must have been done long ago. When the back scale broke out at the pin, the notch might have been carved into the horn - to make sure that the cord stay at place and hold the scales together.

    Regards Peter

    Maybe not quite 1700s unless the scales are leftovers from that era, but still a quite handsome old near stubby W&B. Not a lot of wear on it, and the image is after 30 minutes with polish and a cloth. Iíll do more cosmetic work later after I hone it and see if any problems show up.

    It looks to be in pretty fantastic shape.

    From what I think I can identify on the letters ...ENE..... and ...AL?....
    could be "SENE-GALL" written in two lines as shown in Sketchley directory from 1774. Maker David Cadman, Blackfields.

    That's in great condition. Scales look like they can be brought back to like new, again. Love the shaves from the ol' cast steel razors from that era

    My thoughts as well. For comparison, here is my (later) example of the David Cadman mark. Yours is a nice early piece.

    When I use my fingers to "spread" the pic or zoom in, it looks like EME.
