Another for my collection. The blade was so badly rusted I had to remove the script. Sometimes you win, sometimes you don't. So I finished the blade with a satin brushed finish, polished the spine, shaft and tail along with the scales. Honed it up and it's a terrific shaver now.

Hi Mark

Nice work on the blade restoration, but those scales Babeando

Wow! those scales are absolutely! stunning. I imagine they change colour as light direction and light levels change...

Take care, Mike

Oh yeah Mike,, they certainly do! And I just used it not a half hour ago. Man,, this thing cuts better than razors I've used that cost 100 times its price.
It's a keeper for sure!
I'll be posting another razor, a Torrey ,, that has a similar scale material. Sort of a green version of cracked ice.[/i]

Looks are deceiving. It wasn't reground. Sanded.
