    Default Wade & Butcher + Joseph Rodgers Restorables

    Picked these up at the antiques store yesterday.

    One is a W&B Extra Hollow Ground, The other a Joseph Rodgers Beast. The JR is 9/8 at its SMALLEST part! Its insanely huge! Both these razors should restore very nicely.
    Might even go into my personal collection...

    First: The Joseph Rodgers:






    And the W&B:

    The tang on the JR looks huge. Or maybe the text is just small. Anyway, nice finds.

    The JR is a killer blade. If I had it the first thing I would do is get it on the bevel setter and see if the pitting will come off and I can get to good steel. If it is deep it may swiss cheese on you. Fortunately there is plenty of blade so you'll be able to get passed it. If you're lucky it won't be deep and you'll have it all. I would do that before anything else though to see if further restore is worth the effort.
    Be careful how you treat people on your way up, you may meet them again on your way back down.

    Thats the plan! The blade is a really thick 1/4 ground, so I shouldnt have toomuch to worry about with the pitting on the edge. And, as you said, There is definitely plenty of blade, lol
