Found this one at a flea market a week ago. Only the long end of the box, with the end missing on it. Bought the razor and when I got it home I found the guarantee slip. It took a week in a book to get it as good as the pics show.

That's a nice old Robeson razor. Congratulations on that one. Don't see very many double etched razors. And, I've never seen that "New Science Concave" etched blade on a plain black handle.

I've seen that "A. Munson & Son" etch before though, on an old Robeson pocketknife.

Here's a couple of photos of a pearl handled Robeson Wharnecliff that sold on Ebay some time ago. I did not win this knife. I only wish I had.

I think Munson was located in Upstate New York.

BTW; there was a time when that written guarantee included several small coupons that could be detached and sent with the razor back to the factory and redeemed for a free resharpening.

Picked up this nice Terrier from Ebay this past week.

A Christmas present to myself. ::tu::

!910 to 1916.

It arrived in a plain, unmarked, black razor case.

Charlie,
Great razors and stuff. I will try and get some photos up tomorrow of any Robeson razors I have, which may be different from those posted.

I picked this strop/hone combo up not too long ago and it fits in this thread.

The leather sleeve is marked Robeson Shur Edge in script and CUSHION STROP BACK HONE. The sleeve is brittle and in rough condition
The strop is a thick felt like material mated to a chunk of leather
The hone is in very nice condition and it is a 'No. 3100 - FOR WIRY BEARDS'

I bought this Robeson razor off EBay this past week for twenty dollars.

I have never seen such a razor like this from Robeson with a blade etch like that.

It was probably a special order. I’d love to know how many were made.

Got this one today from an EBay seller for $22.50.

I’ve never had a bamboo handled razor before.

That New Science Concave is a great shaving razor. I have two, once I got an edge on them and took 'em for a spin around my face, I was really surprised. They shave like an older "heavy grind" razor without the weight of the the old ones. Blade is stiff. I like 'em and they are in my rotation. I don't know if any were ever made but I'd like to find a 7/8 in that grind just for fun. Both of mine are 5/8s. In fact most all of the Robesons that I've seen are 5/8's.
Charlie, one of my New Science Concaves has the "bamboo" scale in black. :)

Heck of a collection, Charlie! Congrats on putting it together! ::tu::

I found this one last week at a flea market in SE Kansas. No blade etch as near as I can tell, but it does have a nice bit of file work and tooling along the spine. A light stropping and it'd be ready to go. Number on back is 1605.

This is the box it was in from the flea market. I have no reason to believe it's original to the razor, but did find the KOKEN "Barbers's" Co. logo kind of an odd spelling.(or misspelling?)

That's a pretty handle and I think that a lot of razor collectors collect the handles more so than the branded blade.

I have seen that material in a rather unattractive brown/black color on Robeson razors before.

I really like that fiery red.

Koken was a large scale manufacturer of barber shop supplies. I have sat in many barber's chairs made by Koken.
