Some assorted items

*woops- as I was diddling with this,
I realized that far right ivory razor is
in fact a swede. Sorry

That's a cool collection.

Once upon a time I had a straight razor that my Great Grandpa picked up off the battlefield in France during WW1. I kept it up on a little shelf on my wall. Unfortunately it "disappeared" during a divorce. I don't know if it was French or German, but sure wish I still had it.

It looked a lot like the one you have there on the top right, but the handle was a little more yellow colored.

I've used all of those "cutthroat " razors for daily shaving before I
was debilitated and got too shaky.
That reminded me about another "german" hiding behind the bathroom
door

Then of course, the other necessary accoutrements
The right lower is my maternal grandpa's from the
late 1800's-early 1900's thereabouts
The topmost is still my daily user ( sans straight razor)
It's the only one with a marking ( "ENGLAND ") on the
bottom. Came from an estate sale IIRC

Did have a semi rare Eye Brand version of a White Hunter that I

5 times as much today as what I thought was a good price then

Oh well

One last doo dad while the shaving pandora's box of crap is open
Kriss Kross razor blade sharpener (from the 20's?) from the same
grandpa. I once had a Rolls Razor also ( if you've ever heard of that)
that some pinheads stole during a break in. The poeleece found
it and a couple of other items, but apparently the foggy-brained
dipsh*ts thought it was supposed to be a joint rolling machine
and destroyed it trying to make it work to roll with.
Neither of the gadgets are worth much monetarily, but more so
a sentimental notion of that grandpa

I have used Eye Brand since the 70s. Hard to find these days.

Yessir. The Eye Brand are getting scarce. They can be found here and there
new, but they're pretty pricey. Those "sodbusters" are about 70 dollars for the
plain and the locking blades are right at a hundred.

Speaking of scarce. Just below the s-busters there is an Eye Brand ivory micarta
and nickel silver locking folder, and a smaller Eye Brand gen. stag and nickel
locking folder.
Those are the only ones like that I've ever seen anywhere in person.
Anybody else ever saw any of those?

I wore out several eye brand sod busters fleshing capes and hides when I was a taxidermist. Blades were half as wide when new. Eye Brand had a period of poor quality sod busters when they switched from brass liners to steel. Once water got under the scales, the liners began to corrode, pushing the scales off. Sadly, I have had to switch other brands. I still have a few Eye Brands...sodbuster and a few butcher knives.
