    Default 11/16 FREDERICK REYNOLDS - shave ready

    Manufactured 1840-1890. Back of blade slight hollow with Barber notch tip and single shoulder. Blade measures approximately 3 X 11/16. On shank "F.R. - MANUFACTURED BY - FREDERICK REYNOLDS - SHEFFIELD". Blade cleaned, polished and honed shave ready. Light pitting here and there does not affect edge. Dyed horn scales embossed "THE OLD ENGLISH RAZOR " with new brass pivot pin and washers cleaned and polished.

    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 stroped 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.
    Thank you
