Stumbled on to this today. Gave it a quick polish. Turned out not too bad considering all the tarnish on the silver plate.

Apologies for the poor photos. She is much prettier in person.

Love it, congratulations.  I have a 1910 ABC that is a heck of a razor.  I hope you use yours, it is a cool experience.

Thanks, I just did a 3 pass shave with it. Not going to be much for the morning crew to do tomorrow morning. She needs a light touch and I think she is fussy on the angle she will shave at. None of my DEs are everyday users but she'll surely get her turn in the future.

Thanks, just a little too elegant a razor for the likes of me but I'll keep her anyway.  Biggrin She'll have to put her apron on and do some work though. No sitting around looking good and eating bon bons.

They are beautiful razors.  I''ve never developed the love affair I had hoped with the shave of either of mine.. But I do like owning and looking at them.

The only thing keeping me from really liking using mine is that the handle is too thin making holding it bothersome for my slightly arthritic hands. The shave is very good though. I would keep mine if only to look at. They are a vintage work of art in the guise of a elegant tool.
