    Default Clauss "Moore's Best" Any idea on the "Moore's Best"?

    Hello Gents,

    I have searched to find out what The "Moore's Best" might be but have found nothing. I have only cleaned and honed this razor and am really enjoying it. I have seen other Clauss razors with the same scales in the Out of the Clausset razor club but am at a loss to get any more info. Any help here would be great!

    Moore's could have been anything from a drugstore, barber's supply, hardware store, department store, etc.
    Kindof cool to have a unique example. Made By Clauss for a retail seller with their name upon it.
    Nice Clauss!

    Nice Clauss!
    That is what I was thinking, I guess I can do some research on store brands or supply companies. They had to be of a decent size to "private brand" from Clauss. It is a great razor and the more I am around it the more I want to know. That spike point cleans up under my nose like a dream. Getting a date on this razor would help, but we shall see. Until then I am glad this razor is in my rotation.

    Just an idea.

    The company was founded as Moore, Moore & Handley by James and Benjamin Moore and W. A. Handley in Birmingham in 1882,

    That could be it. Trying to find Any dates on an association with Clauss. This should be fun.
