I purchased this Wade & Butcher for about the equivalent of about $30 shipped? Was this a good investment for a straight edge that clearly needs some work?

Thirty shipped doesn't seem bad to me. After being restored that blade will look great. Enjoy!

Can't tell from that picture.

You can always flip it for about what you paid for it. Just the name sells.

Good for shaving? Possibly.

+1 - hard to tell from the pic.

IF the edge doesn't have any chips, cracks, or a bad frown, $30 is in the ballpark. A nice honing job to bring it to shave-ready and it should be a good shaver.

Grant:
The razor does need some work, yes, especially since it has a frown, too. At least that's what I see in the picture. A good restorer could save it, but at what cost?

A slight frown, I just noticed that.
