Very excited about the return of my resurrected Goodwill ...

The razor came to me as just the head (thanks to my pal @ajc347 ) and it has happily sat on a reproduction early style ball-ended handle that I got from Connaught. JJ had the necessary bits to make up a carbon fibre handle which I think suits it really well.
Very excited indeed ... it's fresh out of the fryer, so to speak and will be in my hands in a couple of days.
Super chap to deal with and from the looks of this, he's very good at his work.
Alas, upon stripping the plate the razor was not all brass or I would have had it returned de-plated and polished. The cap, oddly, was some kind of alloy which JJ told me was silver in colour and he couldn't quite identify. Minor warning that it might not plate with his process, but he would polish it up regardless. Happily, the plate took ... and I think you'll agree that it looks stunning!
That is absolutely gorgeous, and very shiny.
