Good evening everyone!!
I found this old straight razor handle while digging early last week. I first thought it was a comb handle lol. The blade had been long gone from being in the ground i guess or had broken off.One of the guys I work with mentioned I should put a blade on it. So I researched it a bit and found the same brand old blade that was for sale on ebay. I pinned the new blade on it on lunch today. I didn't do the best job on it but it works! Thanks for looking!!

Looks like a Gutta Percha handle. There are a handful of collectors of all things Gutta Percha as so many things were produced from it. Once a major industry during the innovations of the Victorian age. Stuff sure holds up well over time I have to say.
