Hi, been away so just catching up on the forum.Craig,
Worked with Scots in Pompey dockyard in the early 80s. Man did they go on about Irn Bru, we'd never heard of it then. Irn Bru, tatty scones, and square sausages they could nay get.Be diff'rnt if twere Irn Bru 'made frae girders' ------- (+ 1960 TV ad in Scotland --- 'Barr's Irn Bru, that's the drink fer youse')
I ended up missing out on this one. Completely threw me as I had thought 25 was the largest the had done but obviously the 27 was dropped from the range.Hi, been away so just catching up on the forum.
As copied to you by jack-Daniels the 27 appears in the 1935 Record No 14 catalogue.
I've checked my copy of a later Record cat and this was Record 1950-pocket-Record-No-16 and it no longer appeared (see below).
The 28 also was not shown.
I don't have any cats between those dates.

So your 27 is pre-1950 - best I could estimate.
Love the Thor hammer, had a copper and hide one for years and found a heavier one at a car boot earlier this year. It's so useful I don't think I've put it away yet. Beautifully made and balanced.nice one
and with my anorak on, has the Parkinson's apostrophe of the early vices, also the higher 'waistline' (maybe before 1890?) ---can't quite see - does it say VICE or VISE?
(I'm also a Thor hammer fan, - should they go with Woden vices?)
