Manufacturer: handcrafted antique

Often times the most rudimentary relics of our past, like the simplest utilitarian items of today, are the least likely to be preserved to be passed on to future generations. The true hand wrought everyday 18th century straight razor of our colonial period surely falls in that category with surviving examples few and far between. A good published example of the earliest of types may be found in Neumann and Kravicís Collectors Illustrated Encyclopedia of the American Revolution where, on page 240 fig. 1, a nice side view of one like the one offered here is illustrated from Neumannís personal collection. As is noted in the text of this reference, these wide bladed folding razors frequently did double duty both as a razor and as a patch knife for the trimming of the linen rifle ball patch when loading the trusty flintlock rifle, musket or pistol. We know from personal observation that these keen hand wrought folding razors were as likely to show up in a medical or surgical kit as they served the surgeon as well as the scalpel of the period. (see also: Valley Forge Revolutionary War Museum collection Valley Forge, PA.) This razor will measures approximately 4 inches long when closed with a wide approximately 2 3/8 to 3 inch long hand wrought high carbon blade. A rich natural patina on metal and wood offer unquestionable evidence of age, originality and period use. We have been fortunate enough to have acquired a small number of this rare type, each in pleasing all original condition, and are offering them individually priced for the collector/ historian who would like one. A rarely surviving example of 18th century Americana.
