Washington D.C. Straight Razors

Postby dcgm4 » Fri Jun 30, 2017 9:57 pm

I haven't seen many straight razors with Washington D.C. stamps, but here are a couple I found. The first is marked D. N. Walford. The second is marked Rudolph & West Co. and was made by Griffon Cutlery.

If anyone has others with D.C. stamps I'd love to see them. ::tu::

Always looking for vintage knives with Virginia, Maryland, or Washington D.C. tang stamps. Any condition.

Nice scores! I've never seen any with a DC stamp before either.

Thanks! :D I've done some research and it seems Rudolph & West is a hardware store that's still in business. D. N. Walford was a sporting goods, cutlery, and souvenir merchant circa 1920.
