    Welcome to SRP.
    And my congratulations.
    You're the owner of the razor made by very known and old Solingen company. I believe, the razor can be restored and you can use it for a long time.
    Your razor was made by Eduard Wüsthof, Dreizackwerk, Solingen. The company was founded in 1814, registered 22nd December 1884. Located in Solingen, Kronprinzenstrasse 49.
    They're still in business.
    Trademarks: 'Dante', 'Draga', 'Dreizackwerk', 'Nuxia', 'Pactroc-Elite', 'Pactroc-Progress', 'Pactroc-Royal', 'Reflex', 'Titus', 'Trajan', 'Trident', 'Troc Pac-Progress', 'Yatagan'.

    Thanks Manah!

    What sort of price would I be looking at if I were to send the Wusthof away for restoration? And is it worth it?

    Anyone any ideas on the second razor?

    Hey Jacko,

    The best thing to do here is to find the members who do restorations in the "Members Services" area of the Classifieds. View their work, choose the one with which you identify, and contact them through PM (private message) or an email to their website. Best to keep sales talk and restoration quotes out of the open forum and in a private area.

    Thanks guys, wasn't too sure if a general approximation was allowed or not!

    Anyone know anything about the second razor?

    Also are they worth anything? I bought them as a pair from eBay a few months back!

    Jacko, they are worth exactly what you feel they are worth.

    If they come out of restoration and shave well, becoming every day shavers, then you are talking about a razor that is worth a "personal" fortune, I have several razors that I would never even consider selling now.
    If on the other hand, you're not a big fan of them, then they are worth exactly what you paid for them.

    Honestly, the best measure of worth is your own! What value do you place on them? They should both come out quality shavers, most of the vendors here on SRP, that do restorations, should be able to get you a really nice shaving razor, even with the hone wear.
