Recent Razor Restoration

Slater Bros - Before


Slater Bros - After



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.

Razor before refurbishing

Mexican Cocobolo Wood for scales


Wood scales roughly cut out.


Scales after joining and after first sanding.


Blade after first polishing before sharpening.


Finished razor, polished, honed and ready for action – around 10 hours of work to get to this stage !

It is for sale so if anyone is interested just drop me an email.
