BEAUTIFUL VINTAGE "HADDON" SHEFFIELD HOLLOW GROUND STRAIGHT RAZOR WITH PURPLE KIRINITE Scales.
A beautiful vintage razors with very little signs of wear or water marks. Haddon was the trade name for W.R Humphreys who made razors at his Haddom works from 1904. The blade has been cleaned, polished & honed ( see below ) and I have made new scales from Purple Kirinite material. It has had new pins & bushes and has its origonal lead wedge. It has been sterilized and then coated with Fredricssons Razor Oil. Fully restored and shave ready ( see note below ). Comes in black presentation box.
