    Save those scales for another razor.

    The scales are nice.
    The spine has way to much spine wear on it and it is uneven wear at that, making it a nightmare.
    The blade is so frowned that by the time you got it straight, it would probably be a 3/8" blade.

    I wouldn't choose it as a first restore attempt. I don't think I'd even choose it to do any kind of restoration on. I would keep the scales and put them on another razor.

    I have to agree with the others on this thread, that razor is WAY too far gone to be worth the time and effort. however, I have a pair of those scales and once I cleaned them up they are some of my favorites. Find a blade with broken scales and put it in the scales!
