    Here's some photos of a couple other razors that I had restored by Joe Chandler. Unfortunately, I don;t have the before photos. But, it's safe to say that they were nowhere this good looking before Joe got a hold of them.

    I specificaly asked Joe for this style of scales on these razors. I saw them on a Henckels 8/8 Friodur he had on his website, and thought they were quite attractive. So, I asked him to put these these complete with double pinning at the scale ends (another feature that I always liked).

    On the W&B swayback razor, he found a crack in the blade. Fortunately for me, he was able to grind it out -- so, I got to keep it for use instead of trashing/binning it!

    So, let me show you some photos...

    Most of these photos are from Joe himself. I didn't get any better shots, so his are up (the last few are a couple of mine for contrasting views).

    The first razor is a 6/8 Wade & Butcher hollow-ground swayback with olivewood scales and turquoise stone spacer. The second is a 5/8 Joseph Rodgers wedge plus barber notch with katalox wood scales and turquoise stone spacer. Both have a CA fiunish.

    Note that the CA finish on both is absolutely smooth and clear. What you see in the photos is the reflection of the countertop they are sitting on in the finish itself.

    Those are some really nice lines in the scale work. Very clean, bold, and masculine. Good job...
