This razor has an old Wade & Butcher blade that was in pretty bad shape so I thought that I would try my hand at restoring it. Since I don’t have a Burr King like Bill Ellis I tried grinding out the rust pits using a Dremel with a 40 grit flap wheel and finished that with 80, 120, 240, and 400 grit flap wheels. I then polished it on buffing wheels. The scales are Bubinga wood with a finish of several coats of CA (super glue) polished to a high luster. It has custom domed stainless steel collars with nickel/silver pins. I added three rhinestones to blend the silver color of the blade and the collars and pins with the wood. The wedge is also Bubinga wood. One problem, when I was about finished with the blade I dropped it and chipped the edge on the front of the blade so I honed that out but leaving a slightly wide spot on the spine. Oh!! and it shaves also. HERE IS THE KICKER I AM DONATING THIS RAZOR TO THE SRP.COM GIVE-AWAY THAT IS TO START SOON.
