    Default 11/16 BRADFORD, BOSTON FBU - shave ready

    (3)
    Manufactured 1850-1890. Back of blade hollow with square point and single shoulder. Blade measures approximately 3 X 11/16. On shank "BRADFORD - BOSTON - FOR BARBERS USE". Blade cleaned, polished and honed shave ready. Dark horn scales sanded, soaked in needs foot oil and polished. Bug bites filled with superglue and Podauk wood dust. New brass pivot pin and original domed washers.

    Light coat of oil for protection on blade. Please look at photos as they are best description.

    Honing: One layer of electrical tape on spine. Bevel set on 600 grit diamond hone. Then 6000 water stone and finished on 20,000 Jasper. Then stropped on canvas with diamond paste and then leather and disinfected. A $18.00 VALUE FREE.

    I personally test shave each razor before final disinfection. Shave ready is different to each person. Factors like light or coarse beard or beard length come into play. I have a heavy beard and test shave every razor on a two day growth. If razor gives a close comfortable shave I call it shave ready. If it does not shave right I re-hone the razor.

    Payment due in three days.

    Free USPS First Class shipping to U.S. only. Optional insurance $2.75 extra. If not insured seller is not responsible for damage during shipping.
    Outside U.S. I pay first $4.00, buyer pays balance. Optional insurance varies by destination and will be calculated before payment.

    Thank you.

    $30.00

    That last picture is a little blurry. Is that a near wedge? In the other pictures it looks more hollow.
