    Well, that's how second life is given to the razor. Great work!

    Oh man, I wish I hadn't seen this thread. The last thing I did before reading this assess my very own, precisely similar W&B, and plan out how I was going to work it. Mine looks way better in the before pics, but I have a dreary feeling it will look far worse in the after pics. Great job, and thanks for giving us something to aspire to.

    Maximilian...beautiful work on the regrind. Would it be possible for you to post pictures of your grinding set up? I can't visualize your 10" wheel spinning away at 3450 rpms and you getting such accuracy. What durometer wheel and what grit sandpaper are you using. Thanks for the info.

    Here's my setup. It's a belt grinder. Not a stone grinder or buffer. You also need to use a very low speed when working on a hardened piece of steel as not to lose the original temper. Hence why a variable speed is so useful to have. Wheels are 70 durometer and grits depend the application and end result.

    Holy c**p Max ,
    If you didn't have the "before" & "After" shots, I wouldn've believed that this was the same razor. What a restore . Beautiful to the Max

    Please pardon me for being a bit late to the party.

    Max, It is wonderful to see a reconstruction of an old razor that actually has distinct curves,"lines," and angles which are visible to the observer. What you have accomplished here is a goal that we all should strive for. A razor that looks like a razor and is not a melted shadow of one! The scales are modern and not at all out of place. Had they the same materials, back in the day, they would have used them.
    Thank you!
    Respectfully
