  Razor Smith - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Razor Smith (William Charles Smith; born October 4, 1877, Oxford, Oxfordshire; died July 15, 1946, Bermondsey, London) was a Surrey slow bowler.
Nicknamed "Razor" because of his extreme thinness, Smith was generally prone to serious injury and could rarely get through a full season's cricket, but when sound, could command the sharpest off-break among bowlers of his day.
Smith was discovered by the great W.G. Grace in the late 1890s and recommended immediately to Surrey, where he had already taken up residence.

 Sharpen a Razor Instructions
People, who often use razors, know: the cutting edge is growing, meaning that the very fine burr on the cutting edge (which can be seen under the microscope) changes whenever the razor is used, but it finally goes back to its old position and will become very fine again.
The basic materials for good straight razors are standard steels with a carbon content of 0.6% and greater and which attain a maximum of hardness, elasticity and resistance to wear in a careful process of tempering and treatment.
This unnecessarily caused the straight razor to function far from optimal, and therefore comparable with the new inventions, which of course was the beginning of the end.

 Winston Smith Winfo: Press: Juxtapoz, May/June, 1999
Smith explains that although he had done collages earlier in life, "It became an obsession with me when I contrasted what I had left to what I'd come back to and how things were represented in the '40s, '50s, and '60s, and how things became in the '70s, '80s, and '90s.
Smith found this interpretation of his work ironic, since his intention was to criticize the people making money off Christ rather than the figure himself.
Smith says of the piece, "It was just an obvious idea, although a lot of people were shocked by it because they attach a lot of emotional weight to imagery.

Smith was also part of the Rockabilly scene who with his gang the Balham Wildkatz battled it out with punks, skinheads and other rivals at a time when the various London subcultures were tearing into each other at every opportunity with boots, fists, and whatever else was handy.
Smith loads his memoir with enough raucous mayhem to more-than-satisfy on the entertainment front, but also often pauses for intelligent, analytical reflections on the workings of his own criminal mind, and the life he has spent "fashioning the chains that now bind him".
Smith appears remarkably candid in recounting his youth and how he gravitated toward the criminal life, not only because it beat working in more traditional means to earn a living, but because such petty criminality is remarkably common in England.

However, it was in 1909 that "Razor" became one of the leading bowlers of the day – despite injuries again keeping him out of many games.

1913 was basically a repeat of 1912 – "Razor" came into form only at the tail end of the season – and in 1914 Smith could rarely play due to injuries continuing to recur.
