    Default Greaves restoration

    Hello All,

    My first post and thank you for the wonderful forum.

    I recently have had the pleasure of purchasing razors from a great member of this board. In addition, I have asked him to restore a few. He is an artist and a wonderful gentleman. I will not reveal his name unless instructed to, or even if this is allowed. His work is so beautiful and I hope I am not breaking any rules by posting this. I have sent him a number of razors for restoring and I will post a few before and afters.

    Welcome to SRP. I like your choice to leave the patina. An antique should have the patina it has earned, as long as it isn't serious corrosion. Great looking razors, I particularly like that Roberts Warranted.
    Be careful how you treat people on your way up, you may meet them again on your way back down.

    Those razors are awesome! He did a great job and you will really enjoy them.

    I swear I've seen that eagle on here before holding other great razors.

    I don't know why he's hiding it, we've all seen his work before. Tc

    I just wanted his permission before I plastered his name all over. In any case Karl is an incredible craftsman and gentleman. You all know him from his stellar restorations on this forum. Thank you Karl!

    Best,
    Jeff

    I'm spoiled with Karl's work. I only recently (5 months) began straight razor usage and collecting.
