    Default Also picked up a couple more razors

    These didn't cost me as much but I just couldn't pass these up. A W&B Hollow ground 13/16. Says Sheffield so not really old.

    And, A Tally Ho, 15/16 near wedge. Has a bit of rust on the top of the spine but the face and edge are clean...

    The scales are bowed from someone closing it too hard (Guessing) so I'm hoping I can use a little steam to correct the plastic scales.

    These two only cast me 50 bucks so I've pleased with that. The W&B I think has been put in plastic scales after the fact as there is a huge space between toe and wedge. But I could be wrong.
    It's just Sharpening, right?

    I thought you were cutting back to lower the cash flow. I knew you couldn't do it. Nice catch.

    Some nice shopping Jerry. Those tally ho razors seem very popular these days.

    Nice grab, Jerry. Its hard to resist, when you come across them in the wilds. Unlike the bay, you have them in hand and can get a real look at um to asses their worth.

    Bouschie, You are so right. But as Outback said, its hard to pass them up when they are in your hands.

    Got the rust off the spine of the tally ho and straightened the scales without unpinning. Tightened up the pins and now its in the "Needs Honed" cup. I got to get a bigger cup!

    Just read that the Tally Ho was made around 1840's. I had no idea it was that old. Cool!
