Recent Razor Restoration

Before and after pics of a recent restoration job. Normally I might consider this too far gone for rehoning but this particular razor was handed down from the owner’s grandfather who was issued it in WW1 so it had great sentimental value.  It’s never going to win prizes but is quite useable again.
