During the process of selling many "rescued" or restored razors back in the mid ninety's on Ebay, I was bombarded by written requests on how to do the work. I was spending more time answering questions through emails than I was selling anything. As much as I like being a nice guy, this was not how I wanted to spend all of my time. By using a Web format, I found I could get more detailed and provide an understanding for those who wanted a basic understanding for a razor restoration.
My thought was this: If you had a nice straight razor on display that was marred by surface rust or it has dull and scratched handles, of what value was it? If it doesn't look good, I say, fix it… If you are a
person who likes to tinker with things and wanted to fix your own straight razors, then you probably wound up with my original CD. It had a generous 74 megabytes of information on it. This new version has 287 megs, or three and a half times the information of the original, including over an hour of video.
You will really be pleased with the new look and, especially the new information. This new CD covers all these previously uncovered subjects, in addition to the edited original information. Look for these subjects...

I will run you through the entire process, beginning to end, on how to restore that rusted treasure you found on eBay or at the flea market. Even the one that Grandpa left you. So, get ready to pull them out of that forgotten drawer in the garage and get ready to make them usable again.
The goal will be to, as gently as possible, remove rust, scratches, stains, broken handles or blades, crud, and whatever else is necessary to "rescue" the razor from an eternity of shadows and darkness... or the town dump.
What I am working looking for is the day you hand one of these razors to a buddy and he can not tell it was restored unless you told him... or her. Our aspiration would be to look at one and say, "Wow, someone really took good care of this razor". You will not be able to work miracles, but with a little practice, you can make some really nasty-looking razors fit right in with just about any collection.
