Cooper's shave

  Re: (...)
I got this shave a couple of weeks ago. It's about 18 1/2" long. Can anybody identify the manufacturer for me?

No, but that's a really cool tool.

Well, according to one of my books, its not a D.R. Barton or a White. I have a Barton, but it has wooden handles. I have a couple of other books I'll keep thumbing through.

Looks like a C.F. Shaw shave. They operated in Worcester, Mass circa 1883-1890. That model is likely completely unmarked on either body or cutter. Nice find!
