These are a lovely pair of vintage razors i've just fininshed for a TSR forum member in the UK, a G.Myers & Sons Sheffield razor which came to me in the usual state, broken scales rust staining and obvious no edge, well she was given the works including a new pair of three pin vintage scales i just so luckily had lying around my work space, i'm more than pleased with the finished razor, next up we have a really lovely early vintage Boker with super looking original scales, which as any restorer will tell that when removing vintage scales that the owner wants to keep always makes me nervous, because they have been stting along side the blade for maybe 60 or 70 years you have no idea how the material as faired over that time but with heart in mouth the came off OK, but i'm still pretty nervous when re pinning them back together, but pleased to say the blade and scales restored up beautifully.

Thanks for your interest, i only restore straight razors, i'm sure there are a few vendors that offer DE restoration including plating, good luck.

I'm the lucky owner of these two razors and they look great - Thanks Jamie. Smile

Here's the photos of how they started (when I bought them off of ebay) so that people can see what a difference Jamie has made to them:

Jamie, good work.

I like the detail of the 3rd pin to have a smaller washer than the other 2. Nice touch.
