    Default My First Razor Restoration

    Hi all,

    I just restored a razor for the first time. I followed a lot of instructions in the threads so thank you to all of you who share this information and make it possible for newbies like me to to get into this. Also a special thank you to Jared, aka JScott, who many of you know. Jared is my "Jedi Master" of Straight Razors. He has taught me a lot and answered many questions for me. You da man Jared!!!

    Below are some before, during and after shots of my restore.

    If anyone has questions or comments, please let me know.
