Does anyone know anything about these razors?

Sorry I'm sure this is the 10th thread this week like this but I'm only just now getting into straight razors.

I HATE seeing that much corrosion on good names :sad:

Are you thinking of restoring any/all of them?

Yes I very much plan to do so. The only thing I'm torn on now is if I should keeo the scales to some or toss them.

Toss the broken ones, keep the rest, even if you end up not using them, they some times come in very handy in the future.

You are almost undoubtedly going to have to remove the pivot pin (at least) to get to the corrosion that hides under the scales. You probably have a lot of grime on the insides of the scales that will have to be cleaned up.

Oh maybe I should ask if you have done restos before I start flinging advice - sorry:blushing:. I just hope you can fix those babies up proper. Hope you have them in oil now so they don't get worse
