I found an auction website that dates your blade at somewhere between 1840 to 1860. Given that the double C's you have stamped are more rounded then mine plus the tang on the blade is not as thick and demascus steel, I would have to agree on that date. In my opinion dating these blades are difficult because you sometimes cant pinpoint it, sometimes you only get a large sweep of years it could have been manufactured. Or you get the other aspect, other times given the stamp, the type of font used in the stampings and blade and tang shape and material used on blade and scales, you can pinpoint it. BUT what does a date matter as long as it shaves well, but I too love to date these old blades for coolness factor.Thanks! I did find a bit more information about Thomas Scargill, which is to say much less than most other razor searches
The thing that surprised me about your razor though was that it might be older than my Scargill, and i have one very similar though not in nearly as good of shape at the moment. Any idea how the two would compare in age? Or ultimately do we think this might be older than the Scargill?
