    Thanks for the link! It won't work where I am, but will definitely be seen when I get home! I wish there was a book on at least W and B's Which was correct and complete! So many details in just one maker's history. The cool thing about this forum to me, at least, is learning of early history. It is cool to be able to deal with such old things in a useful manner. It would be great to have all the scoop on Greaves and other Sheffield makers, some obscure ! That book, Is There ONE?

    could be that someone blued the blade after purchase to prevent rust?

    That book isn't about razors makers, about metal.

    It could be a razor maker. Many razors have gun bluing tangs.

    Interesting you would say that. I can almost see someone making those scales, long ago, in a trench or on a ship, and bluing it as well! A person would have to hold it, but it seems that the hone wear is blued too! History, for certain.

    I've seen Solingen full hollows with the top of the spine and maybe the tang blued. Come to think of it , I've seen USA razors with the same treatment. I've never seen a Sheffield or any other factory blade fully blued. Doesn't mean that they didn't do it at some time or another. They made a heck of a lot of razors and I haven't seen them all. I was trying to get them all but gave up on it.

    Be careful how you treat people on your way up, you may meet them again on your way back down.

    It ain't what you don't know that gets you into trouble. It's what you know for sure that ain't so..
