    Default W&B For Barbers Only

    Here is a Wade & Butcher "For Barbers Only" Hollow ground razor, restored to oriiginal, minus the leftover stains and minor pitting. I decided that I kinda like this razor with some of its history still left on it.

    All hardware is original, and you could even say that the steel is original as all I used on it was some polish.

    You can see before pics here.

    Manufacturer: Wade & Butcher
    Make: For Barbers Only
    Grind: ~8/8 Full Hollow Grind
    Scales: Black Horn
    Pins/Washers: Brass pins with Bullseye washers

    I like it. Most of the ones I have restored for my own personal use are...rougher looking. They still work fine and teh look just seems to fit them better.
    'Earl' peaked in popularity in 1940.

    Beautiful blade, and a professional looking restore that preserves the aura of its history and pedigree.
