Very nice razors, Roger. I'd love to know how they were shaped or ground and polished and honed.
Beautiful handles.

I know next to nothing about razors. Were those all stainless steel ?

Wonderful old razors. Thanks for the pics.

I still shave with straight razors, but no M&G in the pile yet. I bet those would shave real nice.

No Greg I don't. I don't know enough about razors to tell who made them.I would be comfortable to say there had several manufacturers over the years.
