This piece came in rather sad shape with the rust, pitting and scratches over the portrait and script. It was a bit of a challenge to not eliminate the script while trying to clean up the blade. It came out pretty well all things considered. There are a couple of blemishes that show up in photos but aren't very noticeable in person.
The scales,, also a bit rough cleaned up just fine.
The Bard will live on.

Mark,
Can one say about this restore that:

"If it were done when 'tis done, then 'twere well it were done quickly."

Sorry. Just seemed appropriate to honor the bard. Again, another great, no, amazing job.

Isn't it though? I just think it's too cool. I just wonder how many other unusual pieces there are out there. And I wince thinking how many are long gone.
The owner just emailed me and is very happy with it.Something along the lines of feeling like "Junior High and the last girl I went out with".
That makes my day!

Wow! those scales cleaned up very! nicely, but it's that blade with the etching which has to take the biscuit...

Take care, Mike

Ahem.

Mark puts his finger on the SAD running through my veins (Captain shoots nervous glance over his shoulder to confirm the First Mate is not in the room. Types fast while the coast is clear.Biggrin) The context was how much I love each razor he restores for me upon its return. That receiving that razor makes it my favorite - just like the appeal of a girl back when I was in junior high, I liked the last one I spoke with.
