I deal with truly RARE straight razors every day so it takes quite a bit to impress me these days.
This is indeed an impressive find. This make is highly sought after in the wet shaving community.
Very Old pre 1892 13/16” Barbers Notch Geo. Worstenholm & Son IXL straight razor
Shave Ready Sheffield England
Tight and centered pins,
Handles have brass pins and a steel end spacer.
Just look at the impressions on the tang! They look brand new. These are usually 85-100% gone when you find one. Blade is not mint condition but it's exceptional for the age. No rust.
This isn't a blade for just anyone. This one MUST go to someone who knows how to baby a razor.
This is an excellent razor and will give you a great shave but it really deserves to be in a glass case somewhere.
Original horn scales. They are structurally sound but have a couple holes in them as is common in these old horn scales.
