    So that's where I left it!

    Please send it back whenever you got a minute.


    Enjoy your new razor, and take Glen up on his offer. That way you'll get lucky twice!

    Wow, I wish i could find a straight (a Freaking Grim reaper no less) lying around. I found one, but it cost me plenty. The blade and scales are in great condition. It was never honed, but one side scale is broken right under the pivot pin. I was considering rescaling it and transferring the inlays, but decided to leave it original. I want to keep it in the excellent condition in which I purchased it (except for the clean break of one of the scales) while keeping the original scales on it. I'm never going to shave with it anyway because of its rarity and value. Pointless, I know. It was more of an investment than a shaver. At least for me.

    Other than the tarnish, that looks to be in very nice condition. Definitely clean it up and use it. I still have a set of those scales, but no razor........lol.

    These are cherished by DD collectors.

    Have fun,

    Lynn

    Here is mine. First pic is how it looked when I got it and the second is after some semi-chrome on a paper towel or three + honing. Not cosmetically perfect but for $100 bucks it is good enough for me and a great shaver. Name:  lifetime2.jpg

    Be careful how you treat people on your way up, you may meet them again on your way back down.
