    Default Army Razor

    I've had this razor for over a year and finally found some time to restore it. I posted this razor unrestored last year with a very interesting coffin. I won't repeat the history. Here is link if you missed it. W. Braodhurst & Son Army Razor
    The blade faces are done in a glazed finish which I think it originally had. I did the spine and tang in crocus because I like the contrast but they were originally glazed. The scales are a copy of the originals of which I only had one half. A lead wedge and brass pins and collars holds it all together.

    Nice work!

    But I can't tell a difference between glazed and crocus in your pictures.

    But then who am I to judge from my pictures?

    You ever find one in an 82cd airborne, fix it up and call me, I would love one that looks like that, with my old outfit. Great work. Tc
