This is a Wade & Butcher 11/16″ Straight Razor that was manufactured in the world’s cutlery capitol, Sheffield, England as marked on the tang. W&B is the most highly recognized name among razor enthusiasts and collectors alike. Known for making incredible razors both for users and collectors, Wade & Butcher is THE razor you must have in your collection. Based in Sheffield England, W&B produced some of the finest razors the world has ever seen.
Featuring a barber’s notch point for a unique and aggressive look. The spine features a ground spine giving the blade a triangle cross section on the top adding to the beauty of the blade. Etched into the blade are the words “Wade & Butcher Hollow Ground” along with the W&B Arrow logo. While this was the standard hollow grind of the time (late 1800s), it is known today as a quarter hollow grind, nearer to a wedge than true hollow grind. Set in the original bakelite scales, this razor has been brought back to life and lovingly restored.
