This is a beautiful seven day razor set from the Wilkinson Sword Co. of London England. The set comes with the razor handle, seven original blades each in a clip with the day of the week marked on the edge of the holder, a leather honing strop with its metal holder, a fine metal clad presentation box, instruction pamphlet and cardboard box. The razor has a short handle which is detailed so as not to slip around in a wet hand. Each thin wedge blade is marked Tom Beasley Sword Smith – Hand Forged Wilkinson Sword Co. - Made in England. The seven razors in their holders are housed in a slotted compartment in the case that has a clip to hold them in place. The leather strop with an attached cord for hanging is folded to fit in the metal holder which also fits in the case. The end of the strop has the Wilkinson logo and also reads; Shell Horsehide. There is a saddle on the top of the holder where the handle of the razor lies. The exterior of the case has a simple design on the lid with a section in the center that could have allowed for personalized engraving. The inside of the case has a royal blue velveteen lining on the bottom and a matching satin like insert in the lid with the Wilkinson logo in gold. An original instruction pamphlet with steps on using and cleaning the razor is also included. This all comes in the original cardboard box which has very nice graphics. I believe this is from the 1920’s – 1930’s.
The case measures about 5” by 2 ¼” by 1 5/8” high and it is in very good condition with little wear and no damage. The razor measures about 3 3/8” long by 1 ¾” wide. It, the razor blades and the metal clip are all in very good condition and appear to have never been used. The leather portion of the strop measures about 13 7/8” long by 1 ½” wide or 18” in overall length including the cord. I don’t believe it has ever been used either. The cardboard box fits snuggly over the metal case. It has done its job in protecting the case but it has edge and corner wear, stains, tears and a missing inner and outer flap.
