This antique straight razor is from 1805 and still in beautiful condition!

The handle is in a black celluloid and the tang is stamped "Registered 10 Sept., I*XL, 1805 No. 2434. Many people know the mark I*XL as being George Wostenholm. But this mark was not George Westenholm until 1826. He became a Freeman and was granted the mark he was to make famous I*XL. The mark was originally granted to William A.Smith on the 29th of June, 1787.

The razor blade is in great condition but the handle does have a small chip at the base, so do refer to the pics and inquire for more detailed pics if needed...

length closed: 6 1/4"
blade length: 4 3/8"
blade width: just under 7/8"
length open: 10 3/8"
