    Default Joseph Rodgers knives!

    These are not razors, but I think they are worthy of sharing!
    I was fortunate enough to be able to score these from a fellow knife collector. My favorite Sheffield razors are those made by Joseph Rodgers and I wanted a knife that I could carry from the same maker, and my buddy came through big time! He actually found me 4 of them:

    All are multiple blade knives, the top MOP knife is a three blade whittler pattern and the others are all pens. Two of them are stamped "her majesty" which is something I don't have on any of my razors. (Most are their majesties)
    Two of the knives have mother of pearl covers, and the other two are both old growth ebony wood. I spent the past several hours cleaning them up and sharpening them, and they are good to go now!

    The whittler is the best catch out of the group, it displays an amazing level of workmanship.

    This one is my second favorite, and is going into my knife carry rotation:

    Thanks for letting me share my excitement

    I found one of these knives in my Father-in-laws estate.

    I'm not sure they are the same, "Rodgers"; however, the spelling of the name and Sheffield makes me think it's got to be in the family.....
