Above is an excellent example of a rarely found mid 19th century PRE-Civil War era (1850-1858 and most likely 1850-1852) regulation US Navy Straight Razor $799. and is in excellent condition WITH its Original Case! It is stamped "US NAVY." on the blade as was the regulation at the time as well as maker marked on the ricasso:
"B.J. EYRE & Co, Late W. Greaves & Sons, Challenge Razor, Sheffield"
This razor has not been cleaned, honed, or reconditioned and has a great patina. It can certainly be used for its intended purpose but would need to be honed. The handle or scales which appear to be original are made of bone, the hinges, pins, and blade are rust and damage free and all works perfectly with a great patina. The blade is very sharp with one small almost imperceptible nick. The original case is also maker marked like the razor and is in excellent condition with only very minor scuffs. Here is a link to a "Razor Blog" where there is information as to provenance and dating this razor Click Here to Obtain Historical Information on B.J. EYRE & Co, Late W. Greaves & Sons.
Above is another excellent example of a rarely found late 19th century or early 20th century (1890s-1900s) regulation US Navy Straight Razor $225. and is in excellent condition! It is stamped "US NAVY RAZOR." on the blade as was the regulation as well as maker marked on the ricasso:
"J.M. WALKER, U.S. NAVY RAZOR, NEW YORK"
The VERY unique feature about this razor is that US NAVY RAZOR on the blade almost looks like a hologram with a design around the text! Now this razor isn't new, but they somehow imprinted the text and design so that you can only see it when tilting the blade on an angle. This razor has not been cleaned, honed, or reconditioned and has a great patina. It can certainly be used for its intended purpose but would need to be honed. The handle or scales appear to be original and are made of bone. The hinges, pins, and blade are rust and damage free and all work perfectly with a great patina. The blade is very sharp with no nicks whatsoever. There is no case that comes with this razor. We have not been able to find any information as to who J.M. Walker as such we cannot accurately date this razor.
