    It's nice to be important, but more important to be nice

    Just picked this razor up at an antique swap meet. Set me back $7.50...I didn't bother to dicker. I haven't seen much info on the W&B "Celebrated Congress" but it seems like a good candidate for some degree of restoration.

    The scales had contracted enough over the years I did have to make a new lead wedge. I used some bulls-eye washers as I didn't have any replacements for the thin grommet type washers it was equipped with originally, and didn't want to damage the originals during the re-assembly process as they are pretty delicate. I did of course keep all of the original materials, and I'm sure someone with more skills than I could re-incorporate the original wedge/pins/washers.

    So, what says the Peanut Gallery? Is this worth shelling out more money for a legit top end restoration, or should I call it a day, hone it up, and get to shavin' with it?

    Dennis, I really like the grin on that 7/8! Did you pick them up looking like that or do the work? Very nice!

    I try to stay away from this thread as long as I can, the lure of the Wade & Butcher can be a bit too much,,,
    I broke away from it years ago because the R.A.D. on these can break the bank.
    I'm trying to explore the creams & soaps now, trying to cut back on the hones,,,,, it's damn hard,,,

    Picked em up like that, look to be nos condition. No signs of sanding or heavy buffing, and one only needed a touch up honing. Either way 55 bucks each is more than I tend to pay but these were too perfect to pass on.
