    Default B. J. Eyre & Co. Late W. Greaves & Sons Sheffield

    Snagged this beauty from ebay back in January. I lightly hand sanded but left a lot of pitting. The horn scales were bug eaten and one was broken. So I replaced them with bone scales, lexan wedge, added internal bearing washers with washer less pinning.

    After honing it was only 13/16, but shaves very nicely. The balance came out very well, but I had trouble getting it to balance for the photo.

    My Eyre's do hone to a wonderful Sheffield shave! I like the look, terrific!; and balance of that razor. That balance certainly helps in the honing and 'straight out scale' shaving under chin if nowhere else.
    Thanks for a tasteful and lovely restoration!
