    I PIF'd a Beardsley & Alvord last year.

    I wonder if it ever got restored?

    Nice razors, y'all.

    Looking forward to hearing the shave report, and how the honing went. Nice looking blade and most likely good quality American steel.

    I meet such razors periodically.
    Some similar Sheffield razors:
    Thomas Turner & Co.

    Default Two More Double Concave Razors

    I found two "double concave" razors dwelling in my collection. I honed up the American Knife Co. shoulderless "Diamond Edge". (sounds familiar?) and it proved to be a really excellent shaver I think that American Knife Co. razors might be rare, since I have never seen another. Anybody got one? The second double concave razor is a D. Miller & Son "Broom" made in Sheffield at the Eldon Works. I have done nothing with it; looks like a "someday" project to restore. Both razors have horn scales. Thanks to the posters in this thread-double concave seems to have been a good idea. The honing was easy and the shave was great, with the American Knife Co. Diamond Edge.
