So I was skimming through an antique store earlier today and found a blade I wanted to ask you fellas about. The blade was a large (7/8 or so), heavy (at least 1/4 ground if not wedge) one with the markings "Bryan & Son, Melton" on it.
Anyone ever hear of this?
The scales were generic black bakelite or something. They wanted $24 for it. If I can decide it is a blade that will shave nice, I might go back and pick it up next weekend to restore. The blade needed a little polishing, but it had no rust and a clean, chip free edge. The scales were bent beyond repair, but that's no surprise.
I appreciate any help y'all can offer.
