FS: 5/8" straight razor by Alfred J. Krank, "Habby"
This has been pulled. Thanks.
This is a nice restored razor. The original has some black stains on it so I went to work to remove the stains and get some new scales on it. I'll included the old scales with it but I snapped off part of it as I was removing the pin. There is a bit of pitting on the blade. Fortunately all this pitting is near the spine. If the buyer can take this to a buffing wheel with some compound and work on removing the pitting but I say just leave it. The stamps are nice and deep so it's still very clear. This is a great razor for a newbie. I've honed this baby on my new coticule but bevel was set with a 1000 grit stone first. It is very sharp but not in the front 1.5 cm. For some reason I was not able to set the bevel at the front probably because there's a little bit of a smile. The buyer can shave with the middle to end of the razor or practice honing on this. It should be a great razor. I've also stropped, sterlized and oiled it. Ready for shipping. I'll include the old scales and a puck of Williams as well. $40 shipped. Paypal only please as gift. Thanks!
