The company was founded in 1724 when John Rodgers first rented the star and Maltese cross mark from the Cutlers’ Company. In the 1780s the family moved into a block of workshops which would become their most famous address, No. 6 Norfolk Street. Rodgers focused on producing the finest quality knives and looked for the best in every aspect of knife production from materials to workmanship. Each knife was branded with the Star and Cross as a guarantee of its superb quality. While continuing to make high quality products, the late Victorian period onwards were difficult for the company. By 1929 they had sold No. 6 Norfolk Street, and had been recording losses during the Great Depression.

This razor was restored using the original materials in which it arrived at the Fretzwerks shop.  

The blade has a beautiful shape with a short tail, beveled tang, thumb notch and jimping.  The maker's mark is nicely intact and the blade face is engraved "Extra Hollow Ground".  All rust was removed from the steel and the blade was brought to a mirror polish. 

The scale set was painstakingly cleaned and sanded to preserve some of it's historic makers while removing major blemishes. We love that names and a date were scrawled into the vintage, blonde horn.  We were able to preserve each marker while bringing the horn to a lustrous, translucent polish. One scale reads "Charles" while the other reads "Chris Relle's" near the toe and "1910" at the pivot. 

This razor will arrive to your door expertly honed, sterilized and shave ready.

Happy shaving!
