I decided that because I didn't like the size or shape of the cream colored knob, I'd do something about it.

Tools: Pocket knife, Black&Decker hand held drill, different grits sand paper, rubbing compound, and plastic polish.

Well done! I still prefer the metal knob Eric provides but your knob really looks nice! It has a retro feel to it.

My knob is the poor mans mergress, it's more in my budget and at the end of the day it shaves the same.

NOPE, nothing I do turns out the same way twice and I just don't wanna mess with other peoples stuff. I can tear my stuff up all day long cause I bought it. Cool

Excellent work, looks really good. Does anyone know how the plastic knob is attached to the rest of the razor?
