Sale Description

After 50+ years of collecting straight razors, Robert A. Doyle will be offering at auction his life-time collection of fancy and unusual straight razors. Up for bid now are 240 lots of the finest, unique celluloid handled razors featured in Doyle’s book, Celluloid Handle Guide for Straight Razor Collectors, Reflecting on Fifty Years of Handle Designs (1870-1920), published in 2005. Also offered are additional pieces that were found after the book was published and some original cutlery advertising display cases. Doyle, an Auctioneer/Appraiser/Real Estate Broker, started collecting at 16 years of age and turns sixty-seven this month. When asked why straight razors? Doyle responded, "They are small, beautiful, historic, one-of-a-kind artistic pieces that are nearly impossible to reproduce. There are no "fakes" to be concerned with." He continued, "It is time to allow others the opportunity to own and enjoy these beautiful shaving tools. The straight razor was the most prized personal tool of men through the ages." Preview is available by appointment at Absolute Auction Center Monday - Friday from 9AM-4PM or online 24 hours.
