    Just posting to share my Sweeney Todd razors that I own.
    I actually own 3 types of razors. I have the NECA official prop replicas, ACME Brand replica razors, and the razors seen here. Not sure what brand that razor is, but those ones are actually sharp (obviously). My other razors that I have (NECA and ACME) are not sharp, they are just prop replicas. I have 11 razors total now. Not really sure why though, they just kind of piled up.

    Below are various pictures of my razors. I will edit this post later with pictures of the three types of razors I have, as well as clearer pictures of my ACME Brand razors. Some of the pics below actually show up on google if you search Sweeney Todd razors, which is kind of funny. My Sweeney Todd razors are kind of google famous (posted pictures of them on FanPop and apparently they show up on google now).

    The pictures below show the 3 brands of razors that I have in my possession. From top to bottom:
    1. ACME Brand Replica
    2. NECA Official Razor Prop Replica
    3. Whetstone (?)/ mystery razor

    Just a kind of interesting pic of my razors

    Here's a link to my prop collection (the razors and box are a little ways down). Have you thought about weathering the box at all. I just used a little bit of charcoal to do mine. I've also modified the bottom of the box, where the razors sit, by removing some of the padding, thus lowering it just a tad makin' the razors fit a li'll better (a tip given to my by benhs1898).

    The Sweeney Todd book has a really good reference for the inside weathering. Do you have the book or would you like me to scan it?

    The link didn't work or you didn't post it.
    I have thought about weathering the outside and inside of the box, but am unsure as to how to do it.

    benhs1898- I have the book, thanks for the offer though
    But you might still want to scan it since Nexus6 wants to see it.

    Nexus6- I have the book, if I can get access to a scanner, I can post pics of it and try to find the pictures that bens1898 was talking about. But if I can remember properly, in the book I have, it really only has one good picture of the razor box. Maybe I have a different book then...

    Sorry for the wait, I forgot.

    Ignore the white dots, they were on my scanner.

    This is a great reference for weathering the lid of your box. Also, you get a look at the latch which appears to operate on pressure.

    Here, you can compare my weathering with the book weathering.

    Oh wow thanks a lot for all the photos! Your weathering looks extremely good. Did you explain how to do it in your thread? If you did, I am going to take another look at that thread xD
    Where did you get that last pic you posted? It's really good. I tried to get a good photo of the razors at the Tim Burton exhibit but it was very hard with the security people being there :p

    I used charcoal. Just looked at the reference and lightly rubbed the charcoal on. Basically, you follow the impressions your razors create on the cushion. I also did a little on the bottom as well. I think the weathering is supposed to be silver tarnish. Apparently some people got all kinds of chances to take photos. It's a shame because it was an excellent opportunity to get reference! I got the photo on a google search.

    @Nexus6, no problem.

    Oh alright, thanks for that. I might try that sometime. If I do, I will definitely post pics
    Really? How did they get chances to get photos? When I went, there was a strict 'no photos' thing going on :(

    Yeah, but it was so crowded when I went there was no room to enforce it.
