    Default Custom Restoration club for vintage blades

    I haven't seen a common thread here displaying the custom restoration of vintage razors, so I thought I'd start one... Doesn't matter if you don't have "before" pics.

    Wade & Butcher Anchor 9/8 restored by Gssixgun... Lignum Vitae wood scales, brass wedge (and matching brush)

    I'd love to see everyone else's custom restored razors, so please post
    It's nice to be important, but more important to be nice

    Here's a vintage Kropp I restored I made the scales using red acrylic liners and Welsh Holme Oak double pinned washers.
    And a vintage German Solingen blade using Lignum Vitae and white acrylic liners and a decorative custom pin that they usually use in custom knives.
