.........anyone out there have a monarch straight razor(1886-1888)??..I always thought this one was my grandfather's razor, but he wasn't born until 1892, so it has to be my great-grandfather's. the handles appear to be buffalo horn................ ::shrug:: .......................

Just went through all my razor tang stamps and couldn't find one Monarch. Can you post a pic of yours? I'd like to see it.

Goins states it was a trademark used by McCoy & Sanders, 1886 to 1888.

About McCoy & Sanders, he states, "Located in New York City and owned by Joseph Francis McCoy and Walter Sanders. They Imported all types of cutlery."

He Shows, MONARCH and dates it 1886.

About J. F. McCoy, he states, c. 1893 to 1908. "Joseph Francis McCoy was located at 157 Chambers Street, New York City. It is believed to be the outgrowth of McCoy & Sanders."

He shows, AXIOM and dates it 1893.

I suspect you already knew most, if not all that, since you knew your grandfather's birth post-dated the company.

If it won't cut a free standing hair on your arm, it's gonna be a painful shave. :wink:
