what do you guys think?
im not into this for much at ALL... found at a local antique store..
i agree of main concern is the pitting.. but if this would clean up which i think it will, it could be a beautiful razor..
are these any good?
mid-blade measurement is 13/16"
blade width is 1/4"

Nah not worth restoring, send it to me and I'll throw it out for you. :lol:
That is a nice W&B, classic barber notch wedge. Do it up nice! Totally worth it. The pitting on the back might cause some problems, but it's worth a shot.

It should clean up OK.
Put some new scales on it, hone it (or have it honed) and enjoy.
It should make a great shaver.

if i go for it, it will get the full treatment

Before going "all out", you may want to hone it (or have honed) to make sure you can get past the pitting. As long as it can take a clean edge, the rest is just cosmetic.

ill definetely be sure the edge can be good before full resto
thanks, any more info?

As said earlier, the only thing that I see of concern is the pitting near the tip, if a honemeister can get a good edge up there you're golden.

There is so much meat on a razor like that, pitting really isn't that much of a dealbreaker.
Looks like a good score!
