This took a bit of doing but it came out just fine. Some age left to it but it works in my eyes.
The scales were obviously shot so a new set was in order in Black horn.
Triple stacks and doubles pinned it back together along with the original wedge.

Wow! I doubt that I would have ever picked up that razor at a garage sale.

Thanks guys.

The whole package at first glance didn't look appealing for sure. That's the beauty of it all.
Scales are easy to replace and some time with sandpaper can reveal a little gem.

While there is much I love about this little "hobby" of wet shaving, to me by far the most intriguing aspect is seeing these 100 year old blades in horrible shape come back to life for another 100 years of work. For those like minimalist who somehow can own just 2 or 3 razors, this is by far the most environmentally friendly way to shave. No landfills getting filled up with anything, not even super thin DE blades.

Amazing work once again Mark.

Very nice I finished restoring one a little while back for a member on the SRP, I was lucky enough to save and restore the original scales even managed to get a nasty warp out of them he swears by this maker he loves the way the razor shaves.
