Vintage Straight Razors offers a Custom Vintage Straight Razor - Wade & Butcher - Sheffield - You Lather Well : I shave Well - 5/8 - Wedge w/Ruby Red scales
WADE & BUTCHER - SHEFFIELD - 5/8 - WEDGE - I LATHER WELL : I SHAVE WELL

This is a sweet looking Sheffield vintage collectors razor from Wade & Butcher 'You Lather Well : I Shave Well'.
The custom scales are Ruby Red acrylic w/tapered faux Ivory wedge.
Razor has professionally been cleaned preserving all original grind and etching.
I decided to leave the frosted blade etching, however this limits the cleaning and restoring of the frosted etching as one swipe with the buffing wheel means fading and eventually losing it all. Because of this a few remaining shallow residual stains remain but for a razor that old I'd say it looks extremely well preserved. Again, restoring the front of the blade would mean losing the whole 'You lather Well : I Shave Well' frosted etching.
Blade holds minor hone wear and sits nicely in the scales.
The blade measures 5/8 - wedge
Total weight: 1.6 oz
Total cutting edge: 2.80"
On the front shank it says: Wade & Butcher Sheffield, England
On the blade it says: 'You Lather Well : I shave Well'
Extremely nice and beautiful example of a Wade & Butcher.

Successor to Robert Wade; succeeded by Butcher, Brown & Butcher Sheffield - 1818-1890.
