Asprey Bond Street Incredible Near Pristine 7 Day Vintage English 5/8 Straight Razor Set- Ivory Scales
This amazing vintage seven day set of 5/8, "travel sized" razors was made in the early late 1800s- early 1900s for the famous London retailer Asprey, and they look to have have never been used or rarely used. This is a truly great opportunity to own a set of near mint collectible razors. In addition, the genuine elephant ivory scales are truly gorgeous and rare.
The blades are all thinly full hollow ground with rounded tips that measure 5/8" wide from edge to the top of the spine and have beautiful factory finish, with only the slightest of blemishes in the steel. The tangs are stamped with the retailer's mark which are crisp and deep and the days of the week are etched into the spine.
The original elephant ivory scales with nickel silver fastening hardware are in like new condition and the blades are held tightly and center well between them. The razors come in the excellent original box which does have a bit of wear but really adds to the value and history of this set. These razors all have a sharp edge which may or not be considered shave ready, but it would not take much work to get them there. For collecting purposes we've left the existing edges as-is, however if desired we can hone all seven for $50. Please contact us after purchase if interested in adding this honing service.
A true collectible, do not miss this one!
