Owner of this razor sent it to me - it was his great grandfathers. His hope was to have a serviceable razor.

These two Ivory Rodgers got unpinned and cleaned up thoroughly

Considering the condition of the blade I'd say you worked some magic on it Thumbsup

If those are the original scales repaired and cleaned up, all I can say is WOW!

"cleaned up thoroughly" I'd say is a bit of an understatement, beautiful restorations, there look as good as new once again Clap

Take care, Mike

The Wade & Butcher turned out well when you consider how far gone it was, but the two in Ivory look a special pair beautiful razors, I would love the opportunity to work with Ivory, but the UK laws are so strict it's not even legal to rework old Ivory that you already own.

This is really excellent work. I didn't think those razors would make it, especially the W&B blade and the Rodgers scales.

I also like that you left the pitting on the W&B, instead of sanding and buffing until there were no etchings or stamps left readable.
Sure, it's great when you can make them look new and save the markings, but when it's both or neither, I'll keep the maker's markings with the pits any day
