    Default Can you help identify this razor? 2

    Hi again,

    After the great response to my last identification post, thanks porridgeorange, I was wondering if any one had any clue as to this antique-market find. My iPhone camera is struggling to pick up the very faint stamp on the tang... all I can make out is "...AM R..." Etched on the blade is "DISPATCH RAZOR." Very worn and with around 1.5mm hone ware this razor is rough but still a great shaver and I would love to know a little more about it.

    Thanks.

    Came across your post while trying to identify my own razor, which is also a dispatch.
    I've seen several with "dispatch razor" on the blade but always a different name on the tang.
    Did you ever find out anymore?

    Martin, why does mine say dispatch razor or the blade but had a different maker on the tang?
