    DUUUUUUUUUDE ! That's fantastic! That's the first straight I ever bought. $5.00 at a flea market. Rusty and trashed. I spent hours and hours hand-sanding the pits out before realizing that I didn't have the skill or ability to ever finish it. I'm so glad I sent it to Glen to restore it. Can't wait to see the rest when they're done. You guys are in for a treat.

    Great job! It looks as I have gone back in time 150 years and stepped into a razor shop! Amazing!

    Great job Glen. As much as I am not a fan of Sheffield wedges I am a fan of what you do to them

    Cool Second of the Five,,, Joseph Elliot 7/8+

    Full Custom Restore on this one, using what I think are some of the most beautiful Honey Horn blanks that have crossed my bench from Masecraft...
    I used the 3M Tri-m-ite sandpaper to polish the horn, the Lead wedge is from a set of Vintage scales
    Pins are Nickel Silver and I used stacked SS washers to hold it all together with new Brass bearing washers inside....

    Thumbs up

    You've done it again Glen ...I love seeing 150+ year old steel look like it almost rolled off the factory floor.

    Cool Third of Five,, Frederick Reynolds 7/8

    Another Vintage restore I actually kinda remembered to take before pics I started on one of the scales then went back and got the camera to take the pics ...

    I polished out the horn scales using the 3M-tri-mite paper the MOP cleaned up with some very gentle polishing starting at 4k... I did a full polish on the steel which I was very happy that all the pitting and rust came off of...
    Used the Tri-Metal washers and pins and new Brass bearing washers...
    The wedge needed a tiny bit of fitting adjustment and some polishing but other then that she went back together very well...
