A tale of two Tuckaways

Discussion in 'Double Edged Razors' started by Cornishman, Jul 24, 2014.

  1. Bump!
     
  2. Andon to answer your question, I have a Silver Big Fellow in Silver case with the narrower flat from 1928, also a Gold New Standard/Bostonian (no case) again from 1928 with the narrower flat.
    I have a late Milady (Tuckaway style razor) on the way to me from 1929 it looks like this will have the narrower flat too.
    All these have the rounded blunt posts/studs.
     
  3. Thanks, Brian!
    How do the rounded blunt posts/studs relate to flat's width? Are all rounded blunt posts/studs on razors with the narrow (late) baseplate?

  4. Andon, all of my razors with the narrow plate have the blunt rounded posts/studs.
     
  5. Brian, from the photo bellow could you tell which type of posts/studs we have here:

  6. Normal bullet studs Andon.
     
  7. In the original post there's pictures of the two types of studs. They're easily distinguishable.
     
  8. Thanks for your input, gents! :thumbup1:
     
  9. WONDERFUL! Thanks for sharing! :thumbup:
     
  10. To answer to the above, so that could possible help the future thread resurrectors. After a further research so far I have seen the following sets in the new head design:
    - gold tuckaway set
    - gold New Standart set
    - silver Big Fellow set
    - gold Milady Decollette set

    I haven't seen any of the bellow in the new head design:
    - Bostonian set
    - Richwood set
    - any traveller set
     
  11. This is good information. I don't think anyone has posted a 13mm Big Fellow.
     
  12. Mr-razor did:

  13. Also, Brian (782sirbrian) has one in his collection if I'm not mistaken.

  15. Cool. I was so inspired by all of these NI Big Fellow 13mm baseplates that I decided to check out my own.

    Imagine my disappointment when I discovered that I don't own one.:crying:

  17. Those Tuckaways remind of a Gillette Somerset I lucked out upon this year. Nice razors and nice summary.

    This is one is made in Canada. My most beautiful set with it's fine intricate designs.

  18. Thanks Edgar. As convenient as it is for travelling I would not travel with it as I don't want to loose it or have it stolen.
