A restored W.R. Humphreys razor

5/8" Quarter Hollow

 


5/8"" Square Pointed, quarter hollow ground.  Restored and smooth shaving Sheffield razor.

Fully restored and guaranteed shave ready.  

 

 This razor is clean, sharp and in shave ready condition

A gentleman's razor. It is sleek, almost feline.  It's got a lovely tip, re-profiled by me to match another similar Humphreys I owned in the past.  Sporting its bone scales, this razor is beautifully balanced and proportioned in a way that only the Victorians could make.  

 

Made in the Haddon Works in Sheffield before the 1890s, this blade is made of excellent, hard steel and will give a lifetime of excellent shaves. It is shoulder-less, which adds to the sleek look.

 

 

The scales and spacer are the beautiful originals, I have tried to show the colour of the scales in the photographs.  The scales are pinned together in a traditional way. Being a natural material, the scales have some staining, which is part of their character. The spacer is made of bone; the razor feels nicely balanced in the hand. 

 

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.
