I can't find the before photos but this one wasn't too bad. The scales naturally were worn so I carved in the details to get the script to read better. It was gone in some areas and the gold just wouldn't have looked good with parts of letters missing.
Cleaned up the blade and she was good to go.
For our out of States friends, Gimbles was a major dept. store in NYC from 1887 to 1987.

I used this along with the Bennet I just posted. Both gave an excellent shave, but the history and thinking about what these have seen just boggled my mind.
