This razor was fully restored to near perfection by Max Sprecher. Originally, the blade would have termiated in a notched point. At some point in this razor's life the tip has been reground. The blade has a mirror finish. However, evidence of its history remains in the form of some dark spotting throughout. The edge has a slight "smile" as shown in the photos. The Ruby Red Acrylic scales were shaped and sized individually by Max for this razor. We have had the razor professionally honed. So, it is completely shave ready.
