    Looks like one with a lot of hone wear. I wouldn't go by the case for a brand name though... look at the tang (by the pivot point) on both sides and tell us what it says there.

    If you can get pictures of the tang markings it will really help.

    As a side note, if this is your first razor I'd recommend sending it to a honemeister to give it a once over. I can't tell exactly what kind of wear is going on from this picture, but it looks like it's pretty worn on both the spine and the edge (and in kind of strange ways). It almost looks like someone tried sharpening it like a knife at one point and rounded the profile near the edge (does anyone else see this?) Anyway, Good luck

    What does it say on the blade? It looks like "The Celebrated *something* hollow ground razor"? That sounds like something that W&B put on their blades, but some pics of the tang would be very helpful to confirm!

    +1 on sending it to be honed if its your first.

    Default Looked after badly

    This razor has been neglected. Theedge is misshaped by bad sharpenning, but it is redeemable. If you do not have the hones required to sort it out I am sure our members can give the right contacts. Good luck.
