    Default Ǹew (to me) razors

    The last two razors I bought, both for an extremely low price.

    A JA Hellberg - Estilstuna "Extra Prima Kvalite" I received last Friday. It came with a 1/16 chip in the blade and excessive hone wear. I had to grind past that chip, so I'm now re-establishing a bevel. The wide and rough bevel was already there (imagine how wide it looked with an extra 1/16 of blade).

    An old Joseph Elliot's Best Silver Steel smiler that still needs a lot of clean up, I have received it this morning and thus didn't work on it yet. It has no hone wear that I can spot. I was able to put a working 1k bevel on it to do a quick arm test, it removed hair with ease.

    You can clean the rust off of those with a product I found on here that works really great. I went on eBay & found it & bought some but haven't tried it yet. I can't remember the razor a member used it on but I can probably find it. The product is called Evapo-Rust. I see the Elliot has some black spots on it which is rust. Good job on the work you have done to them so far!

    Evapo-Rust - Rust Remover
    Advanced Auto parts carries it also. so does O'Reilly, and probably many other auto parts stores near to you.

    I have some razors I need to restore that have some rust on the blade. Evapo-Rust should do the trick!

    Evapo-rust is not locally available, so I usually make a batch of molasses water... it's a nice soft rust chelator. I have used it successfully on a lot of antique tools.

    Oh yeah, I forgot to define "extremely low price": $3.76 and $2.49 (+ shipping, of course)
