Comments: This Joseph Rodgers has been completely restored with full regrind retaining the original grind and leaving a scotchbright finish.

Price: $550
Comments: Everyone of these T Clark Newcastle razors has been completely restored with full regrind retaining the original grind and leaving a scotchbright finish. I don't believe in buffers and greaseless compounds for restores, so these spent time with my grinder and appropriate grind belts to give a more appropriate restore w/ nice crisp and clean lines retained. There was a lot of rust and pitting on the blade faces and now after the regrind they look fantastic. These all range in size around 11/16 wide. I didn’t do much on the spines so as to preserve the faint silver etching of the days of the week. This is a rare set made for the high end gentlemen back in the day. If someone sent me this set for a regrind and honing on all 7 razors they would probably be looking close to the cost I’m asking for this set alone. A lot of work went into making these whole again. Scales are original ivory and were taken apart for thorough cleaning and repinned as original. All 7 blades lock tight in the locking mechanism. Box does show its age as a small piece is missing on the side. Classic, beautiful gentlemen’s set for the serious collector. All razors honed w/ one layer of electrical tape over the spine.

Comments: This Frederick’s Celebrated barber’s notch razor has been completely restored with full regrind retaining the original grind and leaving a scotchbright finish.
