20160227_172102.jpg Hi Everyone,

Check out this vintage Wahl Eversharp Canada poster that I found hanging in my garage! The photography is not great but at least you can see it. If you like it, I'll put
up a better version. The canoe even says "Canuck." I bought a Wahl Eversharp to celebrate this find.

That's a great find. Be sure to keep it out of the sunlight; maybe even put acrylic over it to protect it from UV rays. I have a Wahl-Eversharp gold-filled pencil (pre 1930s and not the mechanical type) that says Made In Canada. I've often wondered where the factory was.

I was looking at some papers I have with regards to Eversharp. Eversharp was owned by the "Machine Repeating Razor Company" in NYC and they list on their letterhead a Canadian factory address of 800 Bender Avenue, Niagara Falls, Ontario.

I, for one, would like to see a better version of this Advert.  Don't have a Canadian Wahl-Eversharp as of yet, but am hoping to locate one someday.  I do have a Canadian Sheaffer Craftsman Touchdown in my wee collection.

I often track down Canadian versions of the big US pen makers famous models. I am still looking to find a Wahl Canadian-made pen, but so far I got a Parker 51 Aero made in Canada (1953), and a Sheaffer Snorkel Valiant Triumph made in Canada.

 

To OP, a great advertisement find, even back then Canada was stereotyped :lol:

Hi BJ,

 

Okay, I'll get a friend with a camera to take a better pic of this and I'll repost. Do you like the Touchdown? I have two Skylines--one from the early 40s and one later, and I really like the pens. No pencils, yet.

I'd love to find one of those Wahl pens. I like the Sheaffer Canadian pens...Made in Canada is on the nib! If there were a moose in the ad we'd have every stereotype going!

Very interesting--that could be it.

It has some acrylic over it (it's one of the reasons why the photo is bad and it's in the garage, but I think I should work on better preservation, for sure. I would like to find one of those pencil/pen sets one day.
