Good evening all,
I came across a Brandonia straight razor at a local antique store and decided to restore it.
Does anyone have any clue about this brand?
I came across one link but the website is no longer around.
I'm posting one pic on the razor. I'm hand sanding this and I'm 320 grit at the moment and it's coming along nicely.

I'll keep you guys updated. It's my first go at restoring one so it will have a mirror finish.
The tang on it has some severe wear but not a big deal.

Here's the razor now. I might give it another go with 1500 grit.

I started with 100, 240, 320, 400, 600 and 1500 then flitz.

It's my first go around at getting a nice mirror finish. [Image: 2b77a2762596d9de1f71932fb9dffb40.jpg][Image: 9c812b538a0dd1bf90789f204c3fef26.jpg]

They were just your run off the mill black plastic scales. I'm going to make a set out of oak I think. That will be my first try as well.
Any tips?
