hi gentlemen. I have a little bit of knowledge about vintage double edge razors, but totally ignorant to straight razors.
I have these two razors with no use. Just want to know whether these have any dollar value or are these collectible items or just garbage.
The Worcester in particular is worth saving. Make a new pair of scales for it, hone it, and you are good to go. When you unpin the old scales, use the unbroken one for a template. Cut just a little outside the lines. Acrylic is easy to work with. You can buy camel bone or horn blanks online, and pinning kits. Rescaling is a fine DIY job. Tape your edge. APply a couple layers of electrical tape to protect the edge and it will be easier to hone when you are finished.
