My transplanted friend shops estate sales in North Carolina. He found this nice razor and thought of me. Swell guy!

That's not reflected light on the case lid just dirt. Notice the red painted handle. After a good soak and some elbow grease it cleaned up pretty nicely.

Try as I might, I just couldn't get the last remnants of paint off. I soaked it first in hot soapy water and then in rubbing alcohol. Gentle abrading with an emory board and then 0000 grade steel wool, with a good tooth brushing between each soak.

The previous owner stamped his initials, "B. H." in the handle. I wonder if he painted it too...

As long as I was snapping photos I took a few pics with my other G types.

Notice how the "shoulders" on each razor are differently shaped.

Thanks for looking Smile
