OK,, this is getting weird. I can't believe how many of the big boys are showing up lately.
This it the basic drill out the pins so I can reuse as much of the original razor as possible, polish the scales, and polish the blade and put it together again with the same wedge routine.
Unfortunately a couple of the washers were quite worn and didn't make the return trip home. So I duplicated them.

Beautiful work. Somehow I get the feeling it didn't look as good as it does now when it was new.

Your comments are too kind. Thanks, I do appreciate them!
yes, these, as well as all W&Bs are great shavers. And ones this size also can do double duty as a Machete for clearing away the undergrowth.

Oh, that is so sweet! It looks pretty much pristine.
You use the word "had" so I can assume there is a chance for me to find it? I'm sure whomever has it won't let it go.
I love to see these pieces dressed in the scales they would have had in their prime.
