GEORGE. WOSTENHOLM & SON'S - I-XL- SHEFFIELD - 6/8 - RE-GRIND

Here's another beautiful, very old, near wedge Sheffield steel vintage razor from George Wostenholm and son's in excellent condition rom around the mid 1800's.
The razor was completely restored with a total re-grind, preserving the original near wedge grind. Almost all blemishes and pitting are gone except around the tang's engraving as it would have meant losing everything. It's minor and shallow. However The Washington Works engraving is gone.
The custom scales are Purple acrylic tapered with a faux Ivory wedge.
The blade measures a tad over 6/8 at the widest point.
Grind: Near Wedge - nice subtle smiling spine and edge - barber's notch
Total weight: 2.1 oz
Total cutting edge: 2.75 inches
Hardware: Silver nickel pins. Stainless steel and brass washers
On the front shank it says: George Wostenholm & Sons I-XL - Celebrated razor - (Washington Works - Sheffield = faded and gone)
