    Yes, Sanskrit and Hindi I can actually read. (As an aside, some hand-written devanagari omits the top line.)

    Ah, that is where I had seen it before. I knew it looked familiar somehow. Thanks! That was driving me mad.

    This one looks like pseudo-Arabic script to me.

    I have an Elliot, a W&B & a no name Chinese razor's. The no name one is so "Sheffield"!!! I just saw it the other day but I guess I moved it because I can't find it now.

    Then we have a razor with some very old Hebrew script on it...actually means, "Iron Cast Steel" IIRC...whoever owned this razor at one point honed what would have been a beautiful belly out of it...would have been an awesome smiling razor...still shaves like a dream though.

    Yes, when I saw it on eBay my jaw dropped, for a second I thought it was the W&B Ottoman Egyptian & Royal Windsor Razor, from the Royal Windsor Hotel in Cairo, where that razor get's it name I assume.This I guess was it's rival made across the way in Damascus by Elliot...at least that's the story I like to tell...and this is one of those razors that seems to always deliver a BBS shave effortlessly.
