    Default Some Restorations

    Some of the guys in the chat were asking me to show some of my recent restorations, so here goes. All started off with the usual rust, pitting and tarnish. When I get my hip fixed, I'll be doing a lot more with handles. This is a way fun sport!!!!

    Thanks,

    Lynn

    Those blades look awfully shiny Lynn. Makes me want to go look through the draws to find one to send out to you.

    They all look great. I particularly like the second one down and the last one.
    Be careful how you treat people on your way up, you may meet them again on your way back down.

    The Blades look nice, but why the tangs have dirt? any problem cleaning those parts? or a lot of oil?

    Excellent Lynn. Love the horn scales on the Bengall

    Nice work. Its funny to me but I like the traditional looking razors that have been restored while maintaining their originality. The Pipe razor is nice and I recently saw one of these in Verona, WV that was in great shape for an antique store item.
