Sorry if this has been asked before... I might be going to an antique store today to check out a Rolls razor. I saw it there before, but it was locked up and the case was closed, and I was pressed for time, so I'm not sure what all is included. What should I look for to have a (potentially!) workable razor?

The hone not to be cracked.
The strop not to be cut.
The razor handle to be there. This is missing many times.
No rust on the edge of the blade.
Gears move.
There should be a little pointy thing on the spindle. Many times the blade is attached to this. If this isn't there then it will not work to hone and strop as you can't affix the blade.

I doubt that's all, but it's a start.

Thanks Brian. I ended up passing it by today, but something tells me I'll be back...

I picked up a little bakelite pot of Roll Razor strop paste yesterday, for the pot. The contents were ok, a kind of rouge, fatty substance. I kept it in a little alternative pot in case someone wants it. But I don't think it's that special really.
