    Polish the collars up with Maas or similar. work on the blade with polish, pencil point at the rust spots. Dip a Q-tip in neetsfoot oil and slather the scales for a few days. Let it soak in good and wipe off. Works well on some and does not ruin it's originality, IMO.
    Did this one in such a manner. Looks old, yet clean. Like I wanted it to!
    I'll definitely do that, thanks for the advice.

    i have a Greaves wedge that is also wedge less , i wondered the same as far as if it lost its wedge or someone forgot to put one in during assembly of the razor .. my blade sets high do to a slight warp in the horn and the only thing keeping me from taking it apart and adding a wedge is that the scales have no damage as far as bug bites , chips , or cracks , and the original collars that im pretty sure i would almost damage trying to drill the pin out , so my edge dont hit the scales and the scales protect the edge , so im just leaving mine be ..lol
    That's good to know, I'm in the same boat.
