    Default Unknown punch to be identified

    Can anyone identify this punch?
    The razor is definitely English, around 1850. The only correspondence I found with the triple crown is Charles Cammell, Cyclops Steel Works, but I want to be sure

    If German it could be Overhoff & Did as they used 3 crowns. Just don't know if they were side by side or in pattern on razor.

    The problem with Charles Cammell is you are missing word cyclops. What makes you think it is English?

    The shape (spanish point, smile blade) and grinding (near wedge / quarter hollow) are clearly English from the mid-800s. Absolutely nothing to do with the Germans. Fine india steel and warranted are typically English punches from the same period.
    The Cyclops punch may have been omitted to leave space for "fine india steel warranted" (more attractive for the buyers' target)
    The problem is knowing if other British cutlers have used the triple crown.

    Perhaps there was something on the blade prior to regrinding?
