This incredible set came in for restoration. Wow. Blew me away.A 7 day set of CVH Model 31 wrapped in Ivory.
It has the original case as well. I'll let the photos speak for themselves. You'll figure it all out.

Mark I can't thank you enough for restoring these razors! You truly took these razors and brought them back to life. Now... Time to find a handy dandy Swedish to English dictionary to find out what day I am shaving with. Biggrin

It was certainly my pleasure and I can't thank YOU enough for trusting me with your prized possession. They really are such a unique and beautiful set.

Ha! That was the first thing I did. And if you sound them out you can understand the days quite well.
Sun. Songdag
Mon. Mandag
Tues. Tisdag
Wed. Onsdag
Thurs. Torsdag
Fri. Fredag
Sat. Lordag

I mistook Saturday for Sunday since it has "Lord" in it being as we know The Lords Day. But them too in some countries Sat. is the day for worship

Congrats. You have a true treasure. I am very happy for you. Sometimes I dont know what is cooler, seeing the treasures Mark has transformed, or the reactions of those he has done it for. Well actually being the person he has done it for might be my favorite LOL

Mark you have a great gig and do it better than anyone I have seen. Not only do you get to work with and breathe life back into these gems, look at the joy you get to share with other wetshavers by doing it. I know you already know and appreciate that part of it just from corresponding with you.You are at the top of several crafts. Very impressive.

Wow, mycarver, now you are my hero!!! Heart

What a wonderful peace of restoration, and these Heljestrands are worth the effort.
I have a CV Heljestrand MK 31 with ivory scales, and they are wonderful shavers.

Since swedish is my first language I would like to adjust the names of the week days:

Sunday --- Söndag, day of the Sun
Monday --- Måndag, day of the Moon
Tuesday --- Tisdag, day of Tyr (son of Oden)
Wednesday --- Onsdag, day of Oden
Thursday --- Torsdag, day of Tor
Friday --- Fredag, day of Frigg (wife of Oden)
Saturday - Lördag, the day we used to take a bath "Lögaredagen"

I hope the owner of this set, CartsAreADrag I think, will use them.

Thanks for the excellent translation of the days! My goal will be to attempt a full year of daily shaving with this set using the appropriate days. A good razor should always be used IMO.

God I hope this means daily bathing now as opposed to never bathing anymore. 24

Um....wow. Although the MK31 is a bit small for my big mitts, I think I would make an exception and struggle through a year of shaving with these. Enjoy!
