Nice find at the flea market today. Not only a blue old spice mug but this W&B from the time of William Rex,
King William IV 1830-1837. In very good condition with little hone wear. Blade is just under 8/8 with a little
Splintering on the scales. It not my oldest SR but it is getting up there.

A wonderful old razor that will make a great shaver. I used Old Spice for at least 30 years, and wish that I had saved all the mugs along the way.

Great find the blade will be a great restore, I wouldn't bother trying to save the scales personally, I would replicate them using the exact washers using flecked buffalo horn.
