Condition is Used - but still in excellent condition for age. A really nice pair of rare antique / vintage Sheffield made BROOKES & CROOKES Cut Throat / Straight Razors (1 Wedge and 1 Hollow Ground) in a beautiful Original Makers Double Coffin Box with gold detail still in exceptionally good condition and clearly legible (see pics for condition). The blades of both razors are still in exceptional / excellent condition for their age with little, if any, signs of use and / or wear and both sets of scales (handles) are also in exceptionally good condition for their age with no marks or damage (see pics). The double coffin box is possibly the best example that I've ever come across and the gold inlay is almost perfect and it is the original makers box (Brookes & Crookes).I think that the box inscription dates the razors as'antique' rather than'vintage', although it is possible that they used the same design for a long period of time? The quality of Brookes & Crookes razors, along with the excellent condition of them and the double coffin box, means that they may appeal to traders, collectors or the very discerning straight razor shave enthusiast looking for an exceptional example of a very rare pair of high quality Sheffield razors in their original and beautiful double coffin box.
