I just purchased a Red Point straight razor from a local antique shop for 20 dollars, when the owner sent me pictures it looked restorable but upon getting it home it looks like it's in better shape than I thought. I've included some pictures mostly of the blade. I'd like some insight into what kind of work it might need to be shave ready, also gonna have to learn how to use it so some tips and tricks would come in handy.

Before you do anything, please send the razor to a professional honemeister and restorer. Then study by reading material on straight razor shaving and viewing as many videos as possible. Beyond that, ask questions. Good luck.

Anyone you could recommend who does that sort of work?

Yes, it just needs a honing. Let us know how the honing went and how your shaving with it goes. It should be easy to hone.
