A charming 19thC straight razor or cut throat razor.
With a slightly curved steel blade, the tang impressed “Tweedall Late Lamprey”.
The bone handle again slightly curved and scratch-carved with scrimshaw decoration to one side showing a tall ship and sailors in a rowing boat in pursuit of two whales.
Whilst we are not advocates of whaling, it must be remembered that this comes from a previous period in history where such matters were deemed acceptable.
Condition – Good as per images. Please contact us if you require any further information.
