No, this is not an eBay special. Recently I found out that I inherited this beauty from my late Grandpa, who passed away in 1955. The razor had been "stored" in my Dad's desk drawer since then. When he got to know that I'm interested in straight razors, he remembered Grandpa's one and only razor and sent it to me. Yeah, now it's all mine! The razor is marked "WALU - Germany" and the other side "ERN". ERN may be the initials of the person Grandpa inherited the razor from. Does "WALU - Germany" sound familiar to anyone? I'm in the process of restoring it. The scales have been removed, the blade cleaned up and polished. I honed until the chip in the middle of the edge disappeared. Not really sure about the new scales. I made two pair, one of oak, and one pair of poplar. Just wanted to try something different. I'll upload the photos of the finished razor probably by the end of the week, if it's worth showing, that is. I'm a beginner, mind you!
