Yes it is the original Badger knot. The brush appears like it was never used. I am just gonna polish and detail that one.

I'd totally be into a restored brush with silvertip badger and an original, pre-ban ivory handle. I get the desire for restored brushes...they have character.

Just got this razor from a friend of my wife. Cleaned it up, it's a WM Elliot, Made in Germany, with a nicely engraved Maine (Battleship) on the blade. Guessing early 1900 ish, and celluloid scales?

In a busy world, sitting back with an occasional pipe/cigar is a way of saying to ourselves "Life ain't so bad!"

My sister found this at a flea market.
Never seen one like it.
Maybe one of you straight razor guys can chime in.

It's a hone for single or double edged disposable blades. Just a way to get a bit more life out of them.

What i meant to say is anybody know anything about them? Anyone ever use one? Are they collectible?
I can't seem to find anything on them.

I agree all old things are unique not generic like today.
