Sorry, this item has sold.

This one-of-a-kind instrument features the beautiful, exotic look of tulipwood combined with the classy look of african blackwood and cherry burl, and an inner layer of New York cherry wood. A vintage, 3/4" blade make this shave-ready razor a piece you'll be proud to own and use.

Chosen to round out this piece is a Sheffield-made blade, which has been restored and is shave ready, meaning it's ready to use without any additional honing.
