Gents,

I saw this particular blade on eBay, and it was getting no love.  I believe it was NOS based off of the no spine wear...just poorly stored for the last 90+ years.

At any rate, these were the sellers pictures...

Now I don’t have any dremel tool, but I do have access to wet/dry sandpaper.  I thought that it would look nicer if I cleaned it up a bit, and have better corrosion resistance if I smoother out these blemishes.  I did a progression of 600, 800, 1000, 1500, 2000, 3000, 5000, and 7000 grits followed by some hand polishing with Maass.  I think it turned out alright!

I will also say that this was the easiest bevel set that I have ever done...the grind is wickedly thin/full hollow, and the spine edge geometry was absolute perfection!

I am moving this one to the front of the line, and will shave test it next!

So I used this razor today, and it is one of the finest shavers that I have ever used...really just fantastic!  In comparison, it is every bit as good as any of my Filarmonica 14s...and perhaps better than one or two of them!
