    Its close. But the limbs on the tree dont match up to any of the logos. Plus the name is not mensioned in any boker write-ups.
    But, I could be wrong. It does look a little like the first two trees.
    Thanks for the link, Roy!

    It looks like a nice old blade Jerry. Two of my favourite things in a blade over 3/4”, under 1”and half hollow. Couple that with a low input cost, and it’s a winner.

    Sure looks like a Böker tree to me. I've had more than one Böker that had a tree that I couldn't match exactly to any of the pictures.

    The name just throws me. If its a boker than maybe it was close to the first or a special blade ground by the name on it. Oh well. I will keep looking. It looks more.german than english. Still, a great find for a great price.

    It would not be the first time an English retailer, not razor maker, imported a German razor for sale under their own name. I think there is every chance it is a Boker. Nice find that should clean up well and give a satisfying shave.

    Got this Robeson Shuredge in the mail today. It's going to be tossed in the to-do cup for now. I liked the scales on this one and got it for a song too.

    Nice Jerry. The shuredge is a great razor and that steel is fabulous. Those scales are a nice bonus too.
