Just a fun one for myself,,,, finally!
I picked up 40 or so razors a week ago and had this scale less Robeson ShurEdge in the mix. I also recently picked up this old Wostenholm which had a shot blade but interesting scales.
So the likely scenario was to blend the two. The Robeson is a relatively thin razor which goes nicely with the modified scales which are now a bit thinner as well after cleaning them up a bit.
I polished up the blade along with the scales and got a razor up and running for my collection.Turned down some SS washers and polished them as well. Granted, there are some cosmetic flaws on the piece but I can live with that. Overall I think it's a nice looking razor.
With all the black horn I've been doing lately, it was a nice change of pace.

It's not a jaw dropper,, just a nice clean old looking razor that can be used daily. It works for me, and won't be afraid to use it.

Plus,, something else to keep in mind when you're out hunting. Find some parts and make a complete razor. Adds to the enjoyment factor I think.

I'm with you guys. I have to admit it was the silver inlay that made me part with my 5 bucks for a busted blade just to get the scales. Sort of an Art Deco,,Alphonse Mucha style which I like. All total I'm into this piece for around ten bucks. I call it a win.
Hone her up and take it for a spin tonight.

Another fine job. I always enjoy seeing the posts of your latest "creations". I'm looking forward to seeing what comes of the other 38.

In addition to the 38 ,,, there are another 100+ waiting as well.
With what I've done, and have to do, and what shows up, I could post a razor a day for the next several months.
