Razor Specifics:
Manufacturer: William Greaves & Sons, Sheffield England
Age Range: circa early 1800s
Restoration: Fully restored- The blade was reground to this shape back in the 1800s most likely but touched up by us on a 2" wheel, fully polished and cleaned and honed to shaving sharpness (all in-house by GSG founder Matt W.), the new scales made from over 15,000 year old wooly mammoth tusk ivory were carefully fitted and finally the assembled razor was honed to shaving sharpness
Blade
Material: Sheffield Crucible Steel (carbon steel)
Width: 13/16" wide from edge to top of spine at the widest point
Grind: Heavy grind, about half hollow
Hone Wear: None at all, careful regrinding has left the blade with no hone wear and a thin, even bevel at the edge
Tip: Barbers Notch
Finishes: Crocus (mirror) finish all over
Condition: Stunning, only some scattered minor blemishes (patina) remaining in the steel, commensurate with its age
Shave ready: Yes, freshly honed and stropped and sanitized, fully ready to shave
Scales
Material: New scales made entirely by us on our workshop from over 15,000 year old Siberian wooly mammoth tusk ivory, black horn wedge
Pinning:  Nickel silver pins with dome style washers, reproductions like early 1800s examples
Condition: Gorgeous, highly figured and high gloss, the blade is held tightly and centers well between them
About our restoration and honing process
Each one of our restored razors is brought back to life with a passion and attention to detail like it would be an addition to our own collection or user rotation. Many years of restoration experience and hundreds of restored razors sold around the world have refined our processes, but each razor is still given the time and individual attention it needs. Our vintage razors undergo dozens of steps involving blade unpinning (where necessarily) metal grinding/sanding with a range of different diameter and hardness wheels with various grits of abrasive and polishes. Scales are straightened and repaired when necessary, wet sanded and polishing. After the razor’s cosmetic and functional repairs are completed, a multistep honing process using a range of synthetic and natural sharpening stones is used to bring each razor back to keen and comfortable shaving sharpness. Finally stropping is performed on one of our cordovan leather strops and the blade is sanitized in Barbicide hospital-grade disinfectant. If for any reason you are not satisfied with our restored razors, please contact us to discuss return options. Your satisfaction is our ultimate goal.
