    Default Antique shop find

    Just picked this up for 6 (US$12), in a local antiques shop. The scales are warped, and it needs a little care & attention, but not a bad deal, I hope :

    Antique stores in my city have more inverted blow than a jet engine, or rather, they have no razors.
    Did find a nice box the other day which could be tinkered into a razor-holder-thingy.

    But grats to you! =)

    Cheers chaps I was, needless to say, chuffed I've not decided yet whether to remove the inlay and try to embed it in some replacement scales, but ultimately that's all frippery - it's all about the blade...

    I was in sheffield in December for a Uni interview and I asked a local where any antiques shops were but he only sent me to that marketplace area. I was tryna score a sheffield razor and it looks like you nailed one good!

    Those puma's are ace.
