New England Razor Co. "Barbers' Razor" -- restore

Some time ago I picked up this New England Razor Co., English Steel, Boston "Barbers' Razor". I did my usual restore process: steel wool and WD40, 800, 1k, 1.5k, 2k wet/dry and finishing up with lots of hand polishing with Mothers Mag and Aluminium Polish. I will get this on the stones this week and take it for a spin. The edge looks a bit rough, but I am certain it will clean up easily. Here is the before:

And here is the after with a close up of the blade and tang:

Great cleanup! Great work, it's amazing how many razor manufacturers there were. Though back in the day, a straight was all they had.
