This early Masonic Razor was made by the Wade & Butcher Company of Sheffield, England.  They were very popular 1890 - 1920 before double edge razors appeared on the scene.  The Masonic decorations are acid etched into the metal blade.  It is hard to find a nice one these days as the blades rust easily and the horn handles will shatter if dropped.  They are being reproduced today with the symbolism printed on the blade and they have plastic handles.
