J Morton, Late Macdaniel 343 Oxford St England 2-1/4x9/16" Lightly hollow ground wedge with inverted square point and slightly upsweeping hook. Orig ivory scales 1880's. Only 2 known to exist, but they have signs of having been from a 7 day set. 343 Oxford St is known to have been the location for Macdaniel, a razor maker up to 1880. J Morton is known to later have produced other, full size, razors from a Cheapside address. The slight hook at the point (not very obvious in this picture)is believed to have been a Macdaniel trademark of sorts (present on most razors from him) and is not present on later Morton razors. It is believed that these were made at Macdaniels address, mostly as a tribute to Macdaniel, and that J Morton may very well have been his apprentice. Discoloration at the toe is a reflection. Blade was removed from scales to repair a crack at the wedge on back side, hence different pin.

Parvus, by Joseph Elliot 2-1/8x9/16-5/8 1/4 ground Does not have the Elliot name, but very clearly his trademark. Black celluloid scales look original. Do not know of another or any significance of "Parvus" on the blade. Very nearly a MAB copy. Would guess 1890-1910
