I have recently started researching my father's "Wade & Butcher". In doing so I have come to realize the large amount of straight razor enthusiasts out there. Now I'm really interested in getting this razor fixed up and using it. I have searched all over the internet to find another one like mine. I would like to know how old it is. That would tell me if my father got it from his father. On the blade is etched....1st line "The Sheffield"...2nd line "Hollow Ground Razor"...below that is the logo, a B in a circle, an arrow and a cross. I've seen many razors etched Extra Hollow or the Celebrated Hollow, but none exactly as mine. Attached is a photo of one exactly like mine, except - Aside from the blade etching it is marked the same on the shank and the scales are the same in color and design. I also have the box which is marked "Wade & Butcher" - logo - "Sheffield, England". Then on the smaller portion of the box stamped in exactly the way the other is it says "Price $5.oo Each"
Any help or guidance for this noob is appreciated
