Grind: Wedge

Price: $595
Comments: Everyone of these T Clark Newcastle razors has been completely restored with full regrind retaining the original grind and leaving a scotchbright finish. I don't believe in buffers and greaseless compounds for restores, so these spent time with my grinder and appropriate grind belts to give a more appropriate restore w/ nice crisp and clean lines retained. There was a lot of rust and pitting on the blade faces and now after the regrind they look fantastic. These all range in size around 11/16 wide. I didn’t do much on the spines so as to preserve the faint silver etching of the days of the week. This is a rare set made for the high end gentlemen back in the day. If someone sent me this set for a regrind and honing on all 7 razors they would probably be looking close to the cost I’m asking for this set alone. A lot of work went into making these whole again. Scales are original ivory and were taken apart for thorough cleaning and repinned as original. All 7 blades lock tight in the locking mechanism. Box does show its age as a small piece is missing on the side. Classic, beautiful gentlemen’s set for the serious collector. All razors honed w/ one layer of electrical tape over the spine.

It is solid now and only cosmetic. Classic, beautiful Sheffield Near Wedge. Honed w/ one layer of electrical tape over the spine.

Stacks Image 6826
Maker: Wade & Butcher For Barber’s Use
Size: Hair over 11/16 (0.700”)
Cutting Edge: 3.0”
Weight: 1.8 oz
Scales: Original Horn Scales. Needs guided into scales as razor closes a hair towards front scale.
Grind: Full Hollow
Age: Approx. mid 1800s
Price: $159
Comments: This Wade & Butcher has been completely restored with full regrind and leaving a scotchbright finish. I’m not sure of the story on this one as Barber’s Use razors are typically larger. My guess is that it received a regrind many years ago do to chipping or the like on the edge. I gave it a fresh regrind to a full hollow as there was significant rust and pitting and the old regrind was poorly done. Most of that is gone now. I don't believe in buffers and greaseless compounds for restores, so this spent time with my grinder and appropriate grind belts to give a more appropriate restore w/ nice crisp and clean lines retained. Scales are original horn and razor closes a hair to the front so it needs guided in. Honed w/ one layer of electrical tape over the spine.

Scales are original horn and cleaned throughout. They were originally warped pretty bad and have been straightened back. The line on the back scale is I believe a slight interior delamination - did not seem unstable at all. Though this does close center, best to guide in as the opening is very narrow on the wedge end. Classic, beautiful Sheffield Near Wedge. Honed w/ one layer of electrical tape over the spine.

Scales: Light Blue Glass Acrylic w/ Yellow G10 Wedge Spacer
Grind: Wedge
