    Talking Genco Easy Aces

    As promised, my second "restoration" (in quotes still because I'm a n00b and it's far from perfect).

    The only real work required here was smoothing out some hone wear. Other than that, a bit of hand sanding and polishing got it looking pretty good (still some scratches visible, though) and it honed up pretty easily (only my second time putting a blade to the stones).

    It shaves quite nicely, as you Genco fans probably would expect.

    Before and after point & shoot pics. Pardon the silly posing in the after pics - I couldn't resist!

    Oh, and just FYI: This was part of an 8 razor lot I got for about $100, so it was a good bargain for sure.

    All the others are in similar "diamond in the rough" state, but I'd call the Aces the best of the bunch.

    Jake,

    soon i'll be sending my razors to you.

    You did a marvelous job smoothing out that honewear and bringing this beauty back to life!

    I think I have it figured out, I need to try one of these out and the best way to do it is to convince Max to sell me his?

    I've never had a Sta-Sharp, so I wouldn't know.

    I sure several American brands were just different stamps on the same steel, so it's probably a possibility that they are similar - if not the same.

    Interesting thought, I'm sure someone who has used both will provide us with an answer. Good looking piece though, nice work.

    Nice job there Jake. Looks a great example of that model.
