Straight razor box, 1912


J.I. Terrones provided haircuts and shaves at a home for the elderly in Pueblo, Colo. In gratitude, one of the seniors created this container with a handle using cigar boxes. Underneath it says, "From Made By B.J. Knox 1912 Pueblo Co." The front shows a horseshoe, scissors and a razor. There are slots for six razors and space for others tools of the trade. The sides also are decorated with carved wood.

  1. excellent posts through June Joey,
    having finished the cake racks I was wondering about my Gillette items, I have a few sharp things to post soon including razon tins and cut throats - again you have pricked my little interest.
    Cheers from downunder - mal E
