    Default picked this up over the weekend

    i had to go out of town for drill this weekend and along the way i stopped at a few antique shops. i found this wade and butcher 7/8-8/8 (im guessing cuz i dont have a ruler) and a star safety razor for a decent price. the wade and butcher looks great and so does the star. the scales im sure are a user grade rescale. there is movement where the razor is pinned to the scales. i assume the hole in the tang is elongated. is there a way to fix it so it doesnt move or is it just what its supposed to do?? i dont mind the scales on there now but i would prefer vintage scales. i also noticed what looks like uneven griding on the razor. if u look under where the wade and butcher stamp is, its not the way its supposed to be. it doesnt look like it was done by someone hacked at it with a grinder. what do u guys think??? will is affect the honing process???

    all i have is my phone with me right now so these will have to do.

    im also showing pics of the star for the heck of it.

    the star

    its pretty clean except for the top of the case. it will be displayed with the case open anyway. im also happy that the button is still stacked to the case which u dont find often with the old button flap cases

    Nice finds my friend! Not every day you find a W&B in good shape. I'm not much on DE's, but it's cool looking none the less.

    yea i only threw in pics of the lather catcher to show what it looked like. i know most of the people in this forum arent into the saftey razor scene. u dont have to use a lather catcher to enjoy the beauty of it. they r works of art. i like how ornate they r
