Rusty Razors

Parsons and Wescott – 5/8, Round Point, Wedge Grind, Original Scales


Out of stock


Made by Parsons and Wescott, this was my first “Rustic Restoration” razor. It started out very rusty, but the edge was straight and the scales were decent so I gave it a shot. Because I wanted to leave some on the patina on the razor itself, I hand-sanded all of the rust off and strategically removed patina over the company name on the tang and in some other places. After that it was resetting the bevel, a good hone, some time on the buffer getting polished, cleaning up the scales, and re-pinning everything with brass washers and pins.
