Argyll & Sutherland Officers razor set

6 posts in this topic

Hi Dutypiper. Why do you say it is an officer's of the A & S ? I think you are in the right period - before and after WW2.

However the instruction sheet at bottom right incl. the small accessories, are for a Rolls Razor. This looked like a large

safety razor - the big difference was that it came with a strop or, strap which could be fitted into the razor for sharpening.

They were expensive to buy and are still sought after.

The cut throat razor has a history over many years - a gentleman would have a set of 7 - often each one showing a different

day. His valet or Batman would then know to use them in the right order to prevent excessive wear. Mervyn
