    Oh my, that is amazing! The before pic looked so bad I'd have not expect anything even half decent come out of it, but your work has left it looking like it was born only yesterday. A job very well done.

    That is a beautiful restore. The wedge is very cool, as are the scales. Brad your work is always fun to look at, you do great stuff.

    Amazing work, specially considering the condition you started with.

    amazing doesn't even begin to describe how good that looks. excellent job. If testosterone were made into razors it would look like that.

    Hi. I guess you could call me a honester (in all it's implications). However, that's a damn fine job you did.

    I'm brand new to the forum, but have been searching high and low for info on straight razors over the past couple years. It all got started when I ran across an article on wet shaving, and then inherited a couple straight razors from my grandfather. I'm dying to get them back in shape, and in working condition.

    My biggest difficulty I've encountered to this point is how to deal with rust properly, while still retaining that pretty shine, like yours turned out. I'm an electronics guy, I have absolutely no practical experience dealing with metal in this manner. What's this about a grinder you built, and how do you maintain the various lines of the razor when you're grinding? I'm guessing this is all done by hand. How would I go about beginning with a grinder? Are there plans and specs somewhere on here I can check out? I've got several blades that are minus scales that I've picked up for a song and dance at local antique shops that I can practice on.

    Again, that's a God-awfully beautiful finished product, man.

    That is one of the best transformations of a razor I think I have ever seen. Great job!
