Restoring 6 rusty old straight razor blades:
Visiting the flea market on the Main in Frankfurt I bought this nice leather roll bag filled with 6 old rusty straight razors. The price was so low that even just for the leather bag it would be a find. Coming home I first cleaned and oiled the bag and after that I cleaned and removed the rust of the razors. Two of them have no hallmarks and are also quite small like a 2/8 but the others (Bockla, two Peaso, Kobar) I will resharpen and use over the time. A bit of a progress is viewable right now of the images above more will show up soon.

    Hi Alex, how cool is that! Rusty stuff, love it. Old leather, love it. I would have bought it too. On my list: “Remember to visit a flea market”. Have you ever been to Tollwood? Also on my list. Pfiat’ di, Jenny

      Hi Jenny, sadly on most flea markets they sell crap or they try to sell it for way too much. Can we blame Ebay for that? Prices can be researched within a minute, good stuff gets more attention there (on Ebay). But definitely I want to go to the Konstanzer flea market this year – never been.
