This Masonic etched W&B came in recently for a do over.
I don't know what happened with all the scratches but they made the resto interesting to say the least.
Made up some new Honey Horn scales and it's ready to go.

Hi Mark

Simply amazing work on the blade, to remove those scratches while at the same time keeping the etching in perfect condition, I stand up and Clap you Sir!

And I believe you know how much I love the look of the Honey Horn scales you produce, always stunning!

Take care, Mike

Thanks Mike.
I got it the best I could considering the parameters I had to work within.
Ah, the horn. I've written several post about this stuff dispelling the myths and issues working with it concerning straightening old scales etc.
In one case I turned an old scale into a question mark,, the straightened it back out again. Polished it and had it not had some chips etc. it could have gone back on another razor.
I've also covered building wedgeless scales out of horn in addition to duplicating W&B scales in black.
Fun stuff.

Well, I just put honey horn on my list for the next restoration Mark does for me.

Now to put some coin away but more importantly (looking over my shoulder for you-know-who Smiley_1140) how do I send it off, pay for it and get it back without - ahem - my Better Half being aware?Hmm
