    You may get some great answers in our Straight Razor Forum. Have you asked there?

    It really depends on the pitting, and various other factors (hone wear etc) if it is worth saving. Doyouhave any pics?

    If the pitting is minor though, go for it!

    [edit: moved the thread to the resto forum for more gents to chime in with some help]
