    Default C.V Heljestrand MK in genuine ivory // 2 x restore/rescaling straight razor kits

    2 x straight razor restoration / re-scaling kit.

    For the man (or woman of course!) wanting to try their own hand at some restoration / scale making, here is a nice way to get started.

    Both kits includes, apart from the blade of course (see below for blade information) one set of bloodwood scales. 1/8" thick, roughly shaped, sligtly oversized so you can change the general shape slightly, edges are
    chamfered roughly. Put together with double-sided tape.
    You decide how much sanding & finishing you want to put into them before assembly.

    Bloodwood in general is very hard & durable, but still isn't to difficult to work with.
    Regular sandpaper & drill bits work well.

    Also included are brass pins & washers & a set of friction washers that may or may not be used, a matter of preference really.
    And an oversized 1/8" thick piece of black acrylic for use as a wedge spacer.

    I have only lightly polished the blades to get a better idea of their state.
    I have no doubt what so ever that both blades should turn out to be great shavers.

    Tückmar 5/8 hollow ground

    Best quality Silver Steel Solingen

    Nice blade, shows some wear, and some staining/very light pitting in a few places, nothing troublesome, should clean up further if desired.





    J.A Hellberg 9/16 ¼ ground

    Nice & clean, some wear & scratches, overall in nice condition &
    should clean up further if desired.







    Asking $42 for one or $75 for both!

    Includes shipping from Sweden.


















    SOLD C.V Heljestrand MK#30 9/16 full hollow ground. Genuine ivory scales SOLD

    Those are supposed to be 4/8, but most of them are a tad bigger, like this one.

    Does the MK-series by Heljestrand need any further introduction?
    I, who am biased of course, feel that they are the best straight razors ever made.
    And yes, the MK#30 takes just as supremely wonderful an edge as does the bigger MK31-33.
    Exactly the same.

    The scales are genuine ivory, original pinning, very clean.
    I have waxed them with beeswax, thats all & they will be good to go another 100 years or so.
    Hold the blade nice, centered & snug.

    The blade is in very nice condition, very small hone-wear. Blade is very nice. only real marks that are on it is faintly visible originall grindmarks.

    Shave-ready & tested on my own mug.
    Honed up to 0.125µ CBN for a very sharp yet very comfortably MK-series edge.

    Comes stropped, sanitized & lightly oiled.

    Asking $82 shipped from Sweden to just about anywhere in the world.










    PAYPAL PLEASE!

    Very nice Razor..I have been looking for a genuine Ivory handled straight for a while now. I missed this one by 2 minutes.. If I had a clue on how to restore I'd be all over the others. Good Luck with your sale.
