The blade came into my shop with a great deal of tarnish, age, pitting, etc. And it’s leaving my shop much the same.
I’m so very happy it still looks old.
I very carefully honed away the chips in this old wedge, and took the bevel to a brilliant polish. The age is fully intact, and the blade is ready for scales and a good shave. With care, this razor should be shaving keen and true for many years to come. Nothing is more satisfying than seeing a fully aged razor, contrasted with a fine shaving edge.
