    Default Fredrick Reynolds in Stained Oak - And a little help please

    This is my second full restoration and I'd like to sell it at a reasonable price.

    5/8 Fredrick Reynolds, roughly a half hollow, light smile and light arched swayback tang. Stained oak, thick shiny CA finish plexi glass spacer, domed brass washers.

    It has a little bit a shallow silver pitting and a few black pits that would have required too much hand sanding to get out completely.

    All that being said what would be a reasonable price (I'm a little torn fighting between modesty and pride)?

    Thanks for your help,

    Mark

    She looks pretty sweet; you've done real well.

    As for pricing; start out asking what you want and you can always drop the price if she doesn't move.

    That's pretty good advice: +1 on that.

    Beautiful resto job on the razor!

    Great job

    That tang stamp looks minty fresh. Did you do anything special there or is that how it was ?

    The tang was in good shape, but I had to work it over, same as the rest of the blade. The deep stamp leaves alot of room to get it just right.

    Thanks,

    Mark
