Tennis 80 Straight

Tennis 80 Straight

Postby deepsouth » Thu May 12, 2016 4:51 pm

Hi Gents,

Have found one of these locally, slight rust on the edge, but fairly good condition. Should I drown some cash on it? Anyone with knowledge of the Tennis brand - cream scales with gold etching on the blade. I believe it's an 80

I think it would be best to post some pictures of the actual razor. That;s only way to tell for sure if there are any concerns with it. Be sure to get a good close up of the blade edge.

Pics would be good. Rust on the edge is always a concern

ShaveHavenSa would be most qualified to say but the rust close to edge is a concern. Sometimes they clean up well and sometimes they don't.
