    Default A few questions about razors

    Hello everyone and happy New year!
    I have a few questions about razors. I'd be grateful if you could help.
    I'm interested in the date of manufacture of the Joseph Elliot razor. And the originality of scales, pins.
    Just interested in any information on the razor "Cuta way". Even Google doesn't know anything about it. But her scales are bone.Attachment 314729Attachment 314730Name:  DSC_0153.jpg

    Scales ( bone) may be the original.

    As for dating.. Most likely late 1800s.

    U can check. Strazors.Com

    Id guess the later part of the 1800s. But its a guess.

    I would like arguments. For example: the shape of the tail or unusual notch, or stamp, which indicate the second half of the 19th century.In General, I wanted not only to know, but also to understand.
    I, for example, read that the C cross C sign means that this razor was made from 1821 to 1856 (4) years. Isn't that so?

    The more I read, the more incomprehensible. Uniclectica says that C+C is 1821-1856. Strazors says that in 1881 the firm employed 110 people and the firm's mark was C+C. in addition, Strazors says that in 1856 the firm was renamed Joseph Elliot & son. However, I have never seen such a stamp. It is also interesting that there are stamps "J. Elliot", "Joseph Elliot" and "Joseph Elliot's". The last stamp, like on my razor. Who has the answers?

    There are so many dates ,family members,stamps that it can make it very hard to nail down a specific date. Even reading the facts can be confusing .
    I'd say 150 years old - ish
    Sorry i cant be of more use..

    Watched this link. It's hard to tell by the tail. The tail of this Elliot's is like nothing else. It is not short, but very massive. Made a comparative photo with the tail W&B ~ 1860sName:  DSC_0198.jpg
