    Default I have collected a wade & butcher antique razor

    I have collected a wade & butcher 11/16”antique razor. At the end of the 19th
    century, "carbon steel" lived to the present.

    A Wade & Butcher is a good addition to any collection.

    Yes, the Wade & Butcher, "Corporate Mark", have one myself, was one of my first W&B's, a fantastic small wedge post 1891 years. Dubl Duck made the SatinWedge, which is a virtually identical grind.

    IIRC, barbers were looking for a smaller wedge razor, rather than the old school 9/8 big blades, can't recall exactly where I read that, sure there's more to the story.

    Here's mine, was a great find, sat in some box, was unhoned when I got it, all original and complete with coffin box.
