I have a thing for razors stamped Pa. Especially when they're stamped Allentown Bar Supply ( still there) as I was born in Allentown. The neighboring city to where I now live.
There were some minor issues with some rust on the blade. I removed it and went with the factory style finish.
The tang naturally had rust around the pivot hole under the scales which I cleaned up and redid the shaft with acid to get the original style finish here. At first I couldn't read the logo through the crud and thought it was a Robeson.
The scales had a minor chip on the end which sanded out and the color came right back. Very pretty in person especially when back lit as I did on some of these pics to show them a bit.

Very nice. Love the texture and acid finish.

And the scales have deep, rich flavor to them.

I get down to Bethlehem a few times a year to one of the companies I do business with.
