    I just found this little guy, today. It's a 150 petty, and from what I can figure, was made between 1901 and 1934, with a feeling it's in the 10s. Joseph Rodgers G R stamp, with "His Majesty", etc. This thing is thin and the profile is perfect! I noticed I'm not feeling how it cuts though. It really wants to steer, which I'll have to fix up, but it does enjoy goin through things.





    The steel is surprisingly hard to move. I'm curious if anyone might know what steel it is, and anything else that's cool about it. Ahem...Son, or steeley...ahem....

    That's nice. I've only seen something from them once, an I remember it being hard to move, steel that is. Great find. Maybe you should send it to me to fix up, lol. J/k, but really nice find though

    pure virgin carbon baby! That my friend was made by the best of the best of its time. Once you get it all squared away, you won't want to ever give it up. That steel should be pretty hard for its time also. I'm sure it has a ring to it when you flick it.
    lucky bastard!

    It is rock hard, deadly sharp, sounds funny on the board AND is incredibly non-reactive for carbon. I'm honestly in awe.

    The crazy thing is, I know I'm only about 60% to its potential sharpness. Crazy, crazy steel.
