I am a new guy to the wetshave...at least it has been many years ago, but I am ready to get into it...I was just waiting for a razor (Weber) to start it all off with...when I found a Wester Bros razor that I had picked up about 7 years ago and had forgotten all about. So now I would like to reclaim it into a shaving apparatus if it is possible.
I would like to know a couple of things about this straight edge too. I am uploading 4 images of this razor to help with these questions.
1. Its approximate age?
2. If it can be used for shaving still. The edge of the razor is slightly "nicked" ...has a bit of a rough edge at spots, but no true notches.
3. I haven't looked at any strops, any suggestions?
4. What does the 34 mean... a model number?
I am looking to get a Weber ARC DE, but I not afraid to do straight edge too if this little razor will do?
Thanks for your help.
