    Default a couple of Sheffields

    I bought a couple of old Sheffield razors last week, and they arrived today! A 15/16 W&B Barber's Rattler, and a 6/8 Bingham Tally Ho.

    As you can probably tell, the scales of both are in pretty bad shape, so will need to be replaced. I thought the blades would need some restoration, but when seen in person it became obvious they just need a bit of a polish and a hone.

    Sooo.... Who are the Canadian scale-makers? I don't have the tools (or space for tools), and anyways I'm not sure I'm 100% up to the task of making them myself.

    Just bought a Tally-Ho off eBay at a fair price. Going to take some sanding to restore and I will have to make new horn scales. Like you can't wait. I have a W&B like that. Shaves great.

    Both are very nice razors. They will be great shavers
