This is a Wade & Butcher razor that was made in Sheffield, England. This razor was made way back there in the mid 1800's during about the companies first 30 years of business. This makes it over 150 years old. It comes shave ready to provide a shave with the charisma and nostalga of a bygone era. Wade & Butcher was in business from 1820 until 1959. Based on the manufacturing marks and other characteristics this razor was made right around the 1850 era, or a little before. Age definment can be roughly determined from parts like the thicker and wider tang, the short upturned monkey tail, the style of the tang engraving, the rough machining marks that have been smoothed out and polished beyond the original dull and rough surface structure. These facts along with the tang printing that shows this razor was made before 1892 and the "Mckinley Tariff Act of 1891". During the early years finishing techniques were not necessarily emphasized and appearance was left somewhat behind when function was the main criteria. Even so these razors are evrery bit as good and often better than quality razors being made in later years and even today. With only light hone wear this razor, due to complete modern day steel refinishing restoration methods, is in better than new aesthetic condition. This "chopper" razor has a 7/8 wide, carbon steel, hollow ground blade. This blade is fitted with brand new genuine horn scales. Recently honed to provide a smooth, close and comfortable shave this razor comes guaranteed shave ready. This is truly a very nice example of an early model Wade & Butcher straight razor
