A beautifully restored wade and butcher 7/8 wedge with an amazing engraving of a ship. I often try to find special razors and this one is special to me. I dont usually sell razors I love this much. But I do think somebody out there will enjoy this one just as much as me. Now and then I come across a razor with a ship on it and I just love them. They don’t make then anymore so the few I find are definitely a treat!
Alright so, this one took a while to complete. The scales where just in bad shape. I guess 100+ years will do that to you. So a high polish suited the horn in my opinion. The blade was a little tricky to polish because of the etching, polishing etching is risky because you can completely remove the fine engraving. Thankfully this one retained most of the ship even after a some polishing. There is traces of pitting on the blade but I have removed 99 percent of the rust. The scales where broken near the rivets, so I unpinned everything and sanded everything down in order to remove all the cracks and nicks out of them. I really like how they came out. They have a shinny mirror finish. The rivets are stainless and gold plated which is what the original maker used.
