A restored Taylor's The 1000 razor
11/16" Full Hollow
13/16" wide Round Pointed, full hollow ground. Restored and smooth shaving Sheffield steel.
Fully restored and guaranteed shave ready.
This razor is clean, sharp and in shave ready condition.
A beautiful Victorian Taylor's The 1000, a Sheffield made razor that would make a fine introduction to straight razor shaving.
The scales and spacer are the beautiful originals, with a lovely bone spacer. The scales are pinned back together in a traditional way.
The blade started off its life as a round-point razor, but its point was damaged, so I decided to make a Spanish point out of it, working with the damage to preserve as much of the blade length as possible.
This razor will be a joy to own.
My share of the profits will be donated to a Foodbank - everyone wins.
Please note that the photos were taken after the blade was honed and oiled.
