    Sorry for your loss man A good badger is a good friend.

    Speaking of which, I just checked on the golden nib and they finally had some master badger silvertip with a 16mm knot for the one I am currently restoring
    Beautiful is important, but when all is said and done, you will always be faithful to a good shaver while a bad one may detter you from ever trying again. Judge with your skin, not your eyes.

    Hopefully whoever finds it can appreciate it... who knows, maybe you have inadvertently created another wet shaver!!



    I have a few other goodies en route to the great white north.

    Won this earlier on the bay. Listed as 7/8 wedge pre 1891. Looks to be in relatively good condition, some light pitting but overall good judging by the photos. I thought instead of spending $400+ that I'd try my hand at a resto instead. I have a few other blades to play with and get a good technique before moving onto this W&B

    When I first started cleaning up razors, I found it very helpful to start High instead of Low and what I mean by that is abrasives.

    When you get going, try using just some 0000 steel wool and maybe some Mothers Mag and Aluminum polish or MASS or such just to remove the top crud and see what you have.
