Gun Show Straight Razors

I picked these straight razors up at a gun show years ago and just rediscovered them after going through my knives. According to enthusiasts over at r/wicked_edge, Reddit's biggest wet shaving forum, the first blade is a Griffon Carbo-Magnetic. The second was made in England between 1893 and 1937. The third isn't really a straight razor, I just like the handle which seemed to be ivory.

The consensus was these razors have been through some uneven honing, but they are fixable. I plan to take them to my local shave shop to see if they know anyone in the area who could fix these. I'm not skilled enough to repair straight razor edges. Yet. Anyway, have a look!
