The original scales were beyond hope. So, a new set of Dovo 6/8 replacement scales have been mated to this razor.
This is a large heavy razor, typical of what was coming out of Sheffield in the early 1900's. It is too big to be called a 6/8" and not quite a 7/8". The blade had numerous spots of surface corrosion when we received it. These have been buffed out. However, with the exception of areas on the tang and rattail that were in very bad shape, the razor cleaned up very nicely. The blade now has a bright mirror finish. It also appears to have had minimal use and shows almost no honing wear. The edge has a very slight smile with equal amounts of wear at both the toe and the heel. We have had the razor professionally honed. So, it is completely shave ready.
