Broken straight razor restoration - Russia 1963
- Published on: 2/20/2020
- Broken straight razor restoration from 1963. Today I restore a vintage razor from Russia from year 1963. The blade and the handle are both broken. But I will fix it and make this jewel beautiful and really sharp again.
This straight razor comes from a friend who owns an antique store here in Europe. He knows that I like these kinds of restorations, so he didn’t hesitate to send it to me.
With this straight razor it’s straight forward. I de-mounted the handle and removed the rust with 12% vinegar. I started by removing the broken part of the bade there after I hand grinded the blade with grit 1000/1500. After that I polished the blade with my Dremel 3000. As compound I used ultra-cut/ultra-gloss. I did choose to Nickel plate the blade to protect it from rust in the future. For the handle I used some very hard dark wood from Africa. And Finally I sharpened the razor on water stone grit 400/1000/3000/8000 and finished it on a leather strap.
