The Original and only genuine Pipe Razor Geo Wostenholm & Son 1694 Straight Razor
Original scales, Razor is sharp. Sold as is.
The negatives: 1. scales are a bit loose. One side is missing a collar on the pin. It's holding tight enough nonetheless so repinning in not necessary. I don't want to take any chances ruining these old ornate scales....unless you want to renegotiate the price.
No rust. Nice patina spots. I'm not buffing and polishing this one out. As far as the edge I set the bevel and stropped it and it's shaving off the bevel state. However if you want it honed throughout the full progression....that is negotiable too.
Basically if you want it honed completely and repinned I will add $75.00 to the cost. I don't mind if you don't. But if you want to do the work yourself or just want this as a collectors piece....here's your shot at a discount.
Very old and rare blade with very rare original scales.
The rest of the blade is extremely sharp. Selling as is. at half price.
Unfortunately I have a TON or razors I need to get listed. IF you want me to rehone this blade let me know. I will do so for an additional 40 dolllars.
Don't purchase it and then ask me If I'll hone it. Contact me first so I can adjust the price.
Only ONE available. No I won't hold it and no I won't be getting more.
A razor like this won't come around twice. Great investment.
If you need it rehoned in the future I'll be happy to maintain it at no cost but postage.
12% discount for Litecoin, Ethereum and Bitcoin shoppers. We are the change. Thank you!
Only ONE available. Will be months before another is ready.
These pieces make excellent gifts for all occasions. Groomsmen gifts, give one to a son or grandchild who is graduating. House warming gifts, collectibles for knife and shaving enthusiasts. Birthday, Father's days...and occasion that calls for a remembered gift.Legal Disclaimers:

Warning by purchasing any of our BeardKnife products you agree that you are asserting that you are not stupid
and ergo responsible for anything bad that happens to you or a razor that is in your hands.
I highly RECOMMEND for any items that have STEEL components that you pick up a 5 dollar bottle of Beard Knife Razor lube. It lasts forever and costs next to nothing to protect your investment. I see guys dropping $200 dollars on a razor and then wondering why it develops rust when they leave it wet and don't take care of it. Stainless steel doesn't mean rust proof steel. Remember your blade can last HUNDREDS of years or a month. That's entirely up to you. Always...ALWAYS dry your razor after use. Get a stand so it can drip dry if nothing else and apply a little of this oil to your steel after use and you will not have to worry about rust. https://www.beardknife.com/listing/649137610/beardknife-straight-razor-steel-lube
INTERNATIONAL CUSTOMERS: You are responsible for your countries taxes not me. If you place an order and I ship the order and it comes back to me because you refused to pay your own import fees or taxes I will NOT issue a refund. So I highly recommend you pay your duties OR do NOT order from BeardKnife. This removes my product from inventory, it costs me twice as much to ship, my seller fees are greater than your tax obligation. I don't like taxes either...but I'm not responsible for your taxes. I cannot ban buyers but not every customer is a paying customer and I do not want you to purchase from me if you cannot satisfy the terms of the listing. You drive up prices for all the other customers who want what they order. Don't be that guy.((This notice is on all listings may not apply to THIS listing: please look at item descriptions before purchasing any items))
Nos definition: New old stock. It means the razor is OLD but not used. So you will not have a razor that is honed or stropped by me. You will have a brand new factory edge. Which usually is shave ready but often will require immediate or quicker work to get the edge how YOU prefer. They are usually the most expensive razors because they are best preserved. By honing them I would be devaluing them. IF you don't care and want me to hone a NOS razor contact me prior to purchase and let me know. Many people put their razors are NOS just to get views and it has no meaning to them just like "shave ready" is not true for most online sellers these days.
Shave ready definition:
Shave ready means different things to different people. It's often just added to titles to increase sales. I use the term honestly. It passes all industry standards of shave readiness and has been put through the described process. If you are looking for a razor that you can take out of the box....and shave with. That's what shave ready is supposed to mean. Worked on by a professional.
My 2 cents on hone wear and scratches. It's a tool. Don't worry about them. Some people tape spines I do not unless stated and for a specific reason. My goal is to maintain the geometry of the razor not manipulate it and provide the best shaving razor not simply a perfect razor. No shave ready razor is in mint but I do my best to balance ALL pros and cons to provide the most trustworthy cutthroat.
