Cleaned up this W&B blade. Was a bit rough around the edges but it came up nicely.
The bone is a nod to what it had originally. In this case the bone almost is as clear as Ivory. Reused the orig. wedge. Notice the double stamping? Sweet little 5/8 blade.

Hi Mark

Nicely done, the blade cleaned up nicely and the new scales are very! clean and sleek looking Clap

I like the "steel"? wedge against the bone material used for the new scales.

Just wondering, did you consider going with "steel" washers and pins instead of brass?

"Notice the double stamping?" Are you referring to the shadow look on the "Wade & Butcher Sheffield" stamp on the tang?

Take care, Mike

Did consider it. Went back an forth. Originals were brass so that made up my mind.
yes, almost looks like a shadow of the stamp.

Does a mis stamp make the razor more valuable like stamps?

Just wondering. Double stamps are pretty rare. Don't think I've actually seen one in person.

Can't say for sure if they are or not. I've wondered the same thing myself as it relates to stamps or even coins.
This is the third I've come across.

It doesn't even look like the same razor - you are a magician!
