Here is a Wade & Butcher "For Barbers Only" Hollow ground razor, restored to oriiginal, minus the leftover stains and minor pitting. I decided that I kinda like this razor with some of its history still left on it.

All hardware is original, and you could even say that the steel is original as all I used on it was some polish.

You can see before pics here. (http://picasaweb.google.com/sapito318/AntiqueFinds#5399316362174441522)

Manufacturer: Wade & Butcher
Make: For Barbers Only
Grind: ~8/8 Full Hollow Grind
Scales: Black Horn
Pins/Washers: Brass pins with Bullseye washers

I like it. Most of the ones I have restored for my own personal use are...rougher looking. They still work fine and teh look just seems to fit them better.

Beautiful blade, and a professional looking restore that preserves the aura of its history and pedigree.

I dig it, "history" and all.
