    Cool Holly Mfg / Lakeville - W&B / Sheffield - Custom Restores

    These two are heading home to our very own Rmaldon240

    I found some info on the Holly Mfg razor, they were made between 1846 and the 1930's in Lakeville CT...
    So she is an American gal according to my info the steel is in near perfect condition and we decided on Streaked Horn with a Faux Ivory wedge
    The W&B is their American Razor with the Eagle Etching which we kept intact I gave the steel a light buff and then tumbled her for over a week ... Gold n Ruby acrylic with a Ruby wedge to offset the color

    Two beautiful razors brought back to life. When you said that you "tumbled" her; is that the same as tumbling bullet casings to polish them?

    Did you happen to snap any before pics? I always enjoy seeing the progression from "restorers dream" to final product.
