The buffalo head is missing on the inlay, the scales are held together with string, the cutting edge has a wacky curve in it (not a frown, not a smile... more of a smirk).
    Sounds like a fun challenge. Who is the maker ?

    I don't get the whole "Patina" thang! Those razors for the most part never had that patina when they were being used back in the day. I am sure my great grandpa would wonder why I was shaving with a dirty blade. Patina comes from non use. I want my razors to look like they did in use or when new. Just the way I am.

    Patina occurs with the passing of time and is by no means an indicator of disuse. Actual patina - not active rust or pitting - protects the steel against rust.

    If a razor has a nice patina, I tend to leave it and where possible, accentuate it by minor polishing. Partly because I like it and partly because I don't like to fix things if they aren't broken.
