Vintage Straight Razors offers a Custom Vintage Straight Razor - Thomas Turner - Sheffield - Sheffield - - 7/8 - Barber's notch - Near Wedge w/Abalone
THOMA TURNER : SHEFFIELD : 7/8 - NEAR WEDGE : RE-GRIND

This is a splendid looking Sheffield vintage collectors razor from Thomas Turner - Sheffield from the mid 1800's in gorgeous condition which has been customized with Abalone scales, tapered with a faux ivory wedge. This is 100% real Abalone shell with a black backing and topcoat durable acrylic layer.
The razor was completely restored with a re-grind hereby removing all blemishes and preserving the original near wedge grind. I would say it looks stellar, all blemishes are gone and the razor looks amazing for its age. Picture don't even do it even justice. Has a nice beautiful shine. There are just a few remaining residual shallow pits left around the engraving part which are barely visible but would have comprimised the engraving, which is still very prominent, by trying to remove them all.
The razor is very clean with no with no rust, cracks, chips or disturbing stains.
Razors sits snug and centers nicely in the scales.
The blade measures 7/8 - Near Wedge - Barber's Notch
Total weight: 2.3 oz
Total cutting edge: 2.85"
On the front tang it says: Thomas Turner - Sheffield
Extremely nice and beautiful example of a Thomas Turner - Sheffield.

Thomas Turner - registered November 1853
Thomas Turner & Co was established in the early 1800s by Thomas Turner and was based at the Suffolk Works on Norfolk Street. They made a large range of goods including table knives, saws, files and edge tools. Like most other larger cutlery firms, they also produced and forged their own crucible steel using imported Swedish bar iron. Thomas Turner & co. supplied the Navy with open razors and exported its knives across the British Colonies.

By the late 1800s Thomas Turner & Co were considered as one of the most important cutlery firms in Sheffield.
